From August 1 through September 30, 2008, the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families (DCF) field-tested three assessments for use in providing child protective services (CPS) to families. The assessments consist of the assessment of danger and safety,  a risk assessment, and a risk reassessment. The three assessments were developed by DCF in collaboration with the Children’s Research Center (CRC) in 2007. The purpose of the field test was to examine how well the assessments could be conducted under actual field conditions and if they could be effectively completed in conjunction with the family.  The following report summarizes information from the Massachusetts field test of the three CPS assessments.
