The Level of Service Inventory-Revised: Screening Version (LSI-R:SV™) is a screening instrument that is ideal to use in situations where it may not be feasible to complete the Level of Service Inventory-Revised (LSI-R) or Level of Service Inventory/Case Management Inventory (LS/CMI) assessment for every offender. Research conducted with the LSI-R:SV shows that it is predictive of a variety of outcomes that are essential in offender management. The LSI-R:SV is able to predict violent recidivism and violations among probation samples while under community supervision, and institutional misconduct among incarcerated offenders. Furthermore, results from the LSI-R:SV are also able to indicate offenders who may require a complete LSI-R or LSI/CMI assessment.
How to Use the Assessment
The LSI–R:SV consists of eight items that were selected from the LSI–R (page 3). Results provide a complete summary of dynamic risk areas that may require further assessment and possibly intervention. With the hand scored format, you use an Interview Guide to complete the interview component, and QuikScore™ Forms to record your ratings based on interview and file information.
