• Manual & Interview Forms
• By Steven K. Hoge, Richard J. Bonnie, Norman G. Poythress, & John Monahan

The MacCAT-CA is a 22-item structured interview for the pretrial assessment of adjudicative competence.  This instrument uses a vignette format and objectively scored questions to standardize the measurement of three competence-related abilities:

  • Understanding (capacity for factual understanding of the legal system and the adjudication process)
  • Reasoning (ability to distinguish more relevant from less relevant factual information and ability to reason about the two legal options: pleading guilty or not guilty)
  • Appreciation (capacity to understand his or her own legal situation and circumstances)
Can be used with both felony and misdemeanor defendants in inpatient, outpatient, forensic, and correctional settings and can also be used to assess treatment progress toward restoration of competency.
