Synopsis: This presentation summarizes the methodology and preliminary results for the Restrictiveness of Living Environment Scale (ROLES) Revision Project. Changing health care policies and continued maturation of systems of care created a pressing need to revise the ROLES. The project produced two allied measures of restrictiveness: a simplified taxonomy of general restrictiveness types and a detailed multidimensional measure of restrictiveness Ð the Restrictiveness Evaluation Measure (REM-Y). The Rasch Measurement Model was used for item and response option calibrations and differential item function (DIF) across placement settings and child and youth characteristics of REM-Y data. Specific next steps in the measurement of restrictiveness are presented.
