Reliability and Validity of the NCAR, JRM, and SAVRY: Risk Assessment Tools for Juvenile Offenders

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The current study investigated the predictive validity of the North Carolina Assessment of Risk (NCAR) and Joint Risk Matrix (JRM) in a sample of 47 adolescent males involved in residential and community-based services. Information will be coded from an addition 200 juvenile offenders. Raters also completed the Structured Assessment of Violence Risk in Youth (SAVRY) and a demographic/background form. Results from the inter-rater reliability analysis suggest that the NCAR has moderate inter-rater reliability when compared to structured professional judgment on the SAVRY. Preliminary analyses revealed that the NCAR and JRM were not significantly correlated with treatment compliance, program re-admittance, and general treatment goal attainment. The comparative predictive validity of the NCAR and JRM as well as the predictive validity of the measures to estimate risk for recidivism will be discussed with implications for future use of these instruments.
