Validation of the Wisconsin Department of Corrections Risk Assessment Instrument
Group: Wisconsin Department of Corrections
The DOC 502 Risk Scale was last validated in 1984 and department officials have sought to examine the validity of their risk instrument on a more contemporaneous population. To address the need for revalidation, the Wisconsin Department of Corrections contracted with the Council of State Governments Justice Center to conduct a validation study of the DOC 502 Risk Scale. This report reviews general issues associated with the use of risk assessment instruments in classifying offenders and presents the results of a validation study of the DOC 502 risk assessment instrument.
