Abstract

The previous three chapters contained reviews of individual measuring instruments, all of which yield scores reflecting dimensions of aptitudes, personality, behavior, attitudes, or circumstances that are relevant in some way to juvenile justice decisions. The assessment tools and procedures considered in this chapter differ somewhat in that they provide information in the form of diagnostic scores directly relevant to forensic decisions. They are designed, in other words, to categorize the youth or to provide a diagnostic label that is directly linked to a judicial decision.
