Accuracy of Risk Assessment in Corrections Population Management: Where’s the Value Added?

In the book Handbook on Risk and Need Assessment: Theory and Practice, Drs. James Hess and Susan Turner’s chapter compares the predictive power of two instruments and three methods to test improvements in predictions for Felony and Violent Felony recidivism for a release cohort of nearly 100,000 California offenders.  They also hypothecized on some common limitations (with the domains captured) in the accuracy of the current recidivism risk assessments.
