Outcomes (Tier 1 and Tier 2)
The intended results of a practice’s activities or operation and a dimension in the CrimeSolutions.gov Scoring Instrument. Tier 1 outcomes refer to the general outcome constructs (e.g., crime/delinquency, drugs and substance abuse, mental/behavioral health, education, victimization, family, etc.). Tier 2 outcomes refer to the specific outcome constructs (e.g., property offenses, sex-related offenses, or violent offenses under crime/delinquency; alcohol, cocaine/crack cocaine, and heroin/opioids under drugs and substance abuse; internalizing behavior, externalizing behavior, and psychological functioning under mental/behavioral health; etc.). On CrimeSolutions.gov’s Scoring Instrument for practices, all effect sizes are coded to a Tier 2 outcome construct.
