To address improving interactions between the ASD community and police, various assessment formats were analyzed to determine a tool that evokes robust responding (i.e. answers that are varied, informative, and in-depth) from police officers. Within participant analysis and across participant analysis were used to determine which procedure evokes the more robust response. Officer responses were more informative when provided assessments that used open-ended questions rather than close-ended questions. Results also suggest that using multiple question formats for the same information aid in obtaining response diversity.
