Reliability and Validity

Reliability and Validity

Summary Reports provide an immediate view of key JIFF results such as risk behaviors, mental health concerns, and the extent of a youth’s needs across the 10 domains.
Service Plans suggest goals for the youth. Staff select the goals they would like included in the service plan and assign services and interventions.

The computer reads the JIFF interviewer questions aloud at a second- to third-grade reading level. The interviewee selects the appropriate answer on the computer screen or responds to open-ended questions. Two versions (youth and caregiver) ask questions across the 10 areas of functioning. Interests and strengths-based coping skills are also covered in the interview.

 

A Service Plan is automatically started by the software and is quickly completed by staff, with input from the family. Based on the respondent’s answers, the application automatically suggests goals that might be appropriate for the youth. Staff then select the goals to be included in the Service Plan and assign services/interventions and a priority level to each goal. Service, priority levels, and additional goals are customized to the individual client.

The JIFF Service Plan is a powerful tool that translates the youth or caregiver’s responses into an action-plan based on practical, achievable goals. Additionally, if both the youth and caregiver take the JIFF Interview, their results can be integrated into one Service Plan.

Studies have shown that the caregiver and youth versions of the JIFF have good correspondence rates. JIFF scores at entry into a program have been found to predict recidivism. In addition, excellent internal consistency of the scale and subscales has also been found.
