Description

Beginning in February 2012, the Minnesota Department of Corrections (MnDOC) began using a modified version of the Minnesota Sex Offender Screening Tool-3 (MnSOST-3) to assess sex offender risk. The original version of the MnSOST-3 contains nine main effects and two interaction effects. In the modified version (hereafter referred to as the MnSOST-3.1), the two interaction effects have been removed, resulting in an instrument with nine main effects. In addition, individual item caps have been instituted to limit inflated risk estimates. Below are the considerations involved in the decision to begin using the MnSOST-3.1.
