Title: Screening for recidivism
Author: Carr, Brendan M.
Abstract: The purpose of this study was to determine predictive capabilities of The Reynolds Intellectual Screening Test (RIST; Reynolds and Kamphaus, 2003) and age at time of psychological evaluation in determining whether juveniles will reoffend in 24-months. The RIST is comprised of two subtests of The Reynolds Intellectual Assessment Scales (RIAS; Reynolds and Kamphaus, 2003) assessment and can be used as a screening tool for intellectual impairment. Data from 202 youth offenders were included in the current study after being court-referred for psychological evaluation. Test of discriminant function was conducted. These findings suggest that the RIST, in combination with age, may show promise as an efficient screener for youth at lower risk of recidivism. Limitations and directions for further research are discussed.
