Abstract:

Abstract: Examined in this study was the interrater reliability of two assessment tools frequently used by mental health professionals who evaluate sex offenders’ risk for reoffending, the Minnesota Sex Offender Screening Tool-Revised (MnSOST-R) and the Static-99. Rater agreement was highest for the Static-99 (intraclass correlation coefficient [ICC1]) = .77; MnSOST-R, ICC1 = .40), although both instruments demonstrated lower reliability than reported in their manuals. Results raise concern about the reliability of risk assessment tools that are used in sexually violent predator proceedings.
