YLS/CMI QuikScore™ Form

The YLS/CMI QuikScore™ form is professional-completed and consists of four sections. Part I provides a survey of all the risk and need factors that might be exhibited by the youth. Part II provides an overall risk/need score and summary of the individual risk/need levels recorded in Part I. Part III provides a section where the assessor can record information about a range of variables, since these might be relevant to disposition or intervention decisions about the client. Finally, part IV provides the assessor with a professional override, to consider all the information about the client and provide their estimate of the risk level involved.
