Criteria for validating assessment tools
To navigate through the Ribbon, use standard browser navigation keys. JDAI sites develop detention Risk Assessment Instruments to objectively screen youth to determine which youth can be safely supervised in the community.
To skip between groups, use Ctrl LEFT or Ctrl RIGHT. Absent an objective approach, high-risk offenders may be released and low-risk offenders detained. Most states have statutes authorizing secure juvenile detention and setting out basic detention criteria.
The assessment would have no ability to differentiate between bottom and top performers.
When doing a validation it is important to get a WIDE variety of performance levels because as important as it is for high performers to score well, it is equally important that low performers score poorly.
This is what statisticians call having the appropriate power to detect differences.
Thus, we recommend that validations studies are conducted with a minimum of 100 people (of different performance levels) and it should be noted that the more people you have the more confident you can be in the results. It is the best way to determine if the way you are hiring individuals into your organization works or not.
Validated assessment tools exist for screening, diagnosing and monitoring the severity of delirium in cancer care. Both authors receive administrative research support through the Bruyère Research Institute.
Well using my previous logic I just told you, this plan sounds perfect.
Detention admissions policies and practices must distinguish between the youth who are likely to flee or commit new crimes and those who are not.
Unfortunately, most state statutes are rather vague regarding eligibility for detention, which means that almost any youth can be brought to a secure juvenile detention center for possible admission.
Sites develop juvenile detention admission guidelines for use by police officers in the field.
If a youth doesn’t meet these guidelines, a summons will typically be issued and the youth released without a trip to the detention center. Validation refers to the process of confirming the predictive value of the RAI in relation to two specific outcome measures: the occurrence of a new offense (arrest or adjudication) pending court or a failure to appear in court.
Once the RAI is implemented, it must be monitored carefully to document its effects over time and to ensure that it remains compatible with changing legal and caseload trends.
