by Robert J. McGrath, Stephen E. Hoke, and Michael P. Lasher
The Vermont Assessment of Sex Offender Risk-2 (VASOR-2) is designed to assess risk among convicted adult male sex offenders. It is composed of a 12-item Reoffense Risk Scale and a 4-item Severity Factors Checklist. The Reoffense Risk Scale is statistically derived and is designed to assess risk for sexual and violent recidivism. The Severity Factors Checklist is clinically derived and is designed to describe the severity of sex offenses. The VASOR-2 can be used in conjunction with the Sex Offender Treatment Intervention and Progress Scale (SOTIPS: available on the Safer Society website) as part of a static and dynamic risk assessment scheme. 2013.
