Three of these instruments allow the clinician to employ a multi-method approach to assessing understanding of the Miranda warnings, and a fourth examines the defendants capacities to appreciate the significance of the rights in the context of police questioning, the attorney-client relationship, and court proceedings.Based on the results of a comprehensive 3-year research study of their reliability and validity, these standardized instruments offer a structured, competency-based testing approach that employs objective scoring criteria, permitting the examiner to compare the performance of examinees to that of large normative samples of juvenile and adult offenders.To administer, score, and interpret the results of these instruments, you will need all three of the items in the Kit: a specially designed easel which provides all required stimuli and examiner prompts- forms for recording and scoring responses- and a manual, which contains a comprehensive description of the instruments, their development, tables of norms, and a discussion of the scientific and professional status of the instruments relevant for meeting legal criteria for admissibility as a basis for expert opinion in legal cases.
