Applying the APEX Tools for Organizational Assessment

“Previously, not many assessment tools looked at issues that specifically affect those who work in the field of corrections ... [This book] presents three organizational assessment tools developed specifically for the field of corrections. The APEX assessment tools are designed to look at an agency’s readiness to take on a change process, understand the importance of safety and security to correctional operations, measure performance on the APEX Public Safety Model’s eight domains, and provide guidance for developing a performance improvement plan” (p. vii).

Five chapters are contained in this publication:

  • introduction;
  • how to use the APEX Assessment Tools Protocol;
  • APEX Screener;
  • APEX Organizational Profile;
  • and the APEX Inventory.

The three tools are bundled with this publication.
