ANNOTATION: The creation and validation of the Ohio Risk Assessment System (ORAS) is explained. Two documents comprise this collection: “Creation and Validation of the Ohio Risk Assessment System: Final Report” by Latessa, Smith, Lemke, Makarios, and Lowenkamp, which includes samples of the assessment scoring forms; and the “Ohio Pretrial Assessment Tool Scoring Guide” by Lowenkamp, Latessa, and Lemke. The Ohio Risk Assessment System “performed as well if not better than both” the LSI-R and the Wisconsin Risk/ Needs instruments (p.ii).
