As one of the Social Climate Scales, the CIES helps correctional staff to articulate their concerns and to develop a cognitive framework for understanding programs. It provides accurate information about perceptions of different programs, and it encourages staff to become involved in program planning and design. Scales measured include: involvement, support, expressiveness, autonomy, practical orientation, personal problem orientation, order and organization, clarity, and staff control.
