ANNOTATION: The ability for a combination of static and dynamic measures to successfully predict sexual recidivism among male sex offenders is investigated. The contents of this study following an abstract includes: executive summary; introduction; methods; results according to static risk assessment instrument analysis, dynamic risk assessment instrument analysis, and combined static and dynamic risk assessment instrument analysis; and conclusions. “A logistical regression model that combined SOTIPS [Sex Offender Treatment Intervention and Progress Scale] and Static-99R consistently predicted recidivism and outperformed either instrument alone when both instruments had similar predictive power” (p. ii).
