Mills and Kroner expanded the examination of incremental validity by examining the impact of discordance among the risk instruments. Assessing risk for sexual recidivism: Some proposals on the nature of psychologically meaningful risk factors. Epperson, D. These occasions represented the first time researchers could statistically control for different risk levels in an empirically validated way.
As such, StaticR and StaticR are more similar in predictive accuracy than the original scales. No differences in predictive accuracy were found between StaticR and StaticR. Meehl, P. Validity, reliability, and baloney.
Stalans and colleagues also found that Static outperformed Static in predicting sexual recidivism.
The interview and the file review sought data on individual items from within 22 risk-relevant domains. The Rapid Risk Assessment for Sexual Offense Recidivism, abbreviated as the RRASOR pronounced like the cutting toolis an actuarial scale designed to assess different levels of sexual recidivism risk for convicted sexual offenders.
Comparison of these two groups of sexual offenders on this number of risk-relevant factors revealed a subset of those factors that were seen to change for the worse in the recidivistic group during the period of community supervision.
The potential for retrospective recall bias, the retrospective nature of the study, and the lack of cross-validation called urgently for a truly prospective study of dynamic risk factors in sexual offenders. It was theorized that if such intervention reduced these risk-relevant factors, there would be a concomitant reduction in the likelihood that the offender would recidivate with another sexual crime.
In general, evaluators should privilege measures that 1 can be coded reliably adequate level of interrater reliability , 2 have relevant normative data, and, 3 make valid inferences adequate predictive accuracy.
Barbaree, H. New York: McGraw-Hill. For the prediction of sexual recidivism, risk instruments were found to add incrementally to one another despite large correlations between instruments, ranging between. Static has a different definition than the other measures.
