RAQI: Risk Assessment Quality Improvement Checklist

The Risk Assessment Quality Improvement (RAQI) checklist was developed by the CSG Justice Center to help state and local corrections agencies, community supervision agencies, and treatment/programming providers analyze how well their risk and needs assessment tool is working. The checklist helps identify potential problems with assessment tools quickly and efficiently. State agencies can then use this information to ensure that taxpayer dollars are targeted correctly and used effectively on supervision, programming, and treatment.
