Project

Alternative Outcome Measures for the Evaluation of Intermediate Sanctions
Contracting Agency: National Institute of Justice

The primary purpose of this project was to develop alternative outcome measures for the evaluation of intermediate sanctions. Traditionally, recidivism rates have been used as the primary, and often the sole, measure of success of intermediate sanctions. These sanctions have enormous potential to benefit both the offender and the community, and many potential indicators of success have been ignored or neglected. Results-Driven Management: Implementing Performance-Based Measures in Community Corrections resents an opportunity to redefine the research community's methodology for examining the criminal justice system.
