Ideal to use in situations where it may not be feasible to complete an LSI-R™ or LS/CMI™
The Level of Service Inventory-Revised: Screening Version (LSI-R:SV™) is a screening instrument that is ideal to use in situations where it may not be feasible to complete the Level of Service Inventory-Revised (LSI-R) or Level of Service Inventory/Case Management Inventory (LS/CMI) assessment for every offender. Research conducted with the LSI-R:SV shows that it is predictive of a variety of outcomes that are essential in offender management. The LSI-R:SV is able to predict violent recidivism and violations among probation samples while under community supervision, as well as institutional misconduct among incarcerated offenders. Furthermore, results from the LSI-R:SV are able to indicate offenders who may require a complete LSI-R or LSI/CMI assessment.
Profile Reports summarize the results of an individual administration, providing scores for all scales.
LSI-R:SV Interview Guide
The LSI-R:SV Interview Guide contains a series of questions that directly link to the areas that need to be assessed to complete the LSI-R:SV QuikScore Form™.
LSI-R:SV QuikScore Forms
The LSI-R:SV QuikScore Form is completed by the professional and includes the necessary elements for scoring the instrument. The QuikScore forms contain special aids that make scoring and profiling very quick and efficient, while minimizing potential for key errors.
The LSI-R:SV consists of eight items that were selected from the LSI-R (page 3). Results provide a complete summary of dynamic risk areas that may require further assessment and possibly intervention. The LSI-R:SV is available in handscored and software formats. With the handscored format, you use an Interview Guide to complete the interview component and QuikScore forms to record your ratings based on interview and file information. With the software format, you can instantly generate Profile Reports upon completing the assessment.
The LSI-R:SV has sound scientific validity and reliability. The LSI-R:SV reliability studies include evaluation of internal consistency as measured by Cronbach's alpha. The validity of LSI-R:SV has been tested for the following:
