PRO uses and applications:

  • Probation departments

The Probation Referral Outcome (PRO) is administered to a client (offender, patient) twice - once before entering treatment (pretest) and again upon treatment completion (posttest). Pretest scale scores serve as a baseline for subsequent posttest comparison. The PRO is a multiscale self-report assessment instrument or test.

The PRO contains 165 items and can be completed in 30 minutes. It is a computer scored self-report test that is administered and scored on-site. Computer generated reports are available within 2? minutes of data entry.

  2. Violence Scale
  3. Alcohol Scale
  4. Drug Scale
  5. Depression Scale
  6. Anxiety Scale
  7. Self-Esteem Scale

These scales represent common probationer problems and concerns.

The PRO does not interpret, judge or state opinions about treatment program effectiveness. It simply reports positive and negative "change."
