Risk assessment is now recognised as a key element of criminal justice social work practice in Scotland and various tools are currently available to assist social workers in their assessments of offender risk. This study was commissioned to compare the predictive ability of two risk assessment tools - the Level of Service Inventory Revised (LSI-R) and the Offender Group Reconviction Scale (OGRS) - in the Scottish context.
