The Risk Assessment Tools Evaluation Directory (RATED) is now available online.

There are a number of significant changes to this resource, including:

  • 61 tools evaluated – (increased from 35 in version 2) 
  • More categories of assessments including - Learning Disability / Internet/Stalking and 3 categories of Youth Assessment
  • Evaluation of the applicability of these instruments with certain groups including - female, ethnic minority and mental disordered offenders

RATED is now an online resource and there are sections for both authors and users to provide feedback on the instruments evaluated.


We hope you find this resource useful and look forward to receiving feedback on RATED.
