Description

In this report, we first describe the COMPAS, present principles from correctional and risk assessment research relevant to evaluating the tool, and distill the psychometric properties that the tool should have. Having provided this context, we next individually summarize and evaluate each of the three reports provided. Finally, we integrate the first two sections to evaluate the current state of evidence on the quality and utility of this tool. We conclude with the current suitability of the COMPAS for meeting the department's goals, and provide directions for further evaluation
