The LSI-R is a quantitative survey of attributes of offenders and their situations relevant to level of supervision and treatment decisions.  Designed for ages 16 and older, the LSI-R helps predict parole outcome, success in correctional halfway houses, institutional misconducts and recidivism.

The 54 items are based on legal requirements and include relevant factors needed for making decisions about risk and treatment.  The LSI-R Manual explains the use of the LSI-R and summarises research studies on its reliability and validity.

The LSI-R can be used by probation and parole officers and correctional workers at jails, detention facilities, and correctional halfway houses to assist in the allocation of resources, help make decisions about probation and placement, make appropriate security level classifications and assess treatment progress.

Paper-and-Pencil (Hand Scored)

Administered on paper, the LSI-R Interview Guide provides a protocol proven effective in obtaining the information required for you to complete the Quikscore Form, which automatically transfers results through to the underlying scoring page.  Simply total the score and transfer it to the ColourPlot Profile to determine the appropriate level of service.


Using information about the offender obtained through various sources (eg criminal records, interviews, etc), you can use the LSI-R Version 5 for Windows to respond to the items as they appear on the screen using the mouse or keyboard.  You can also use the QuikEntry feature to enter responses from a paper and pencil administration for automatic scoring.  The resulting Profile Report provides security classification information based on the overall assessment score.

The LSI-R V.5 software comes with Smartlink, a free client-management program that offers fast report generation, enhanced client-searching capabilities, easy access from your Windows desktop, flexibile multiuser security and scalability for growth to networks of any size.  The LSI-R V.5 software can also be customised for enterprise-wide use with existing client-management systems.
