Back in September
a PSC Research Project
This project lays out a strategy for conducting a comprehensive evaluation of the Michigan Prisoner Reentry Initiative (MPRI). Given that MPRI is now moving up to scale, the timing is right to develop and implement an evaluation strategy that accurately assesses the impact of MPRI by taking a tiered approach to the research. Specifically, this approach will: 1) enhance existing outcome tracking measures; 2) analyze long term trends in outcomes to identify different trajectories’ across sites and offender groups and; 3) conduct a thorough and methodologically sophisticated assessment to determine the precise causes of observed changes in outcomes and isolate the effects of MPRI. This project does not include the actual implementation of the comprehensive assessment, which will be conducted at a later date as part of a separate project.
