SPEP Learning Center
The Standardized Program Evaluation Protocol (SPEP™) is based on Dr. Mark Lipsey’s meta-analysis of over 700 research studies to determine “what works” at reducing recidivism among juvenile offenders. Research findings indicated four factors most strongly related to recidivism reduction: (1) youth risk level and aggressive/violent history, (2) program philosophy, and type, (3) quality of service and (4) amount of service. The SPEP™ is used to assess a service according to these four factors resulting in a recidivism reduction score. The Performance Improvement Process is used to increase the service’s recidivism reduction score between assessments to increase the service’s likelihood of reducing recidivism among juvenile offenders.
SPEP™ Informed Trainings can be facilitated for individual probation departments, service providers, or regionally upon request.
