Access to the administration app, coding and scoring program, training resources, and products that aid administration and coding is limited to individuals who are appropriately trained in psychological assessment and meet the applicable requirements of their state, province, or country. Note, if you are a student in training or still under supervision, you generally would not be eligible for an account. However, you can obtain a sub-account under a professor or supervising clinician who is licensed.
Once we are able to check and approve credentials the new user will be sent a confirmation email that indicates the account is activated and that the user now has the ability to login and purchase the items listed on our Products page that aid clinical practice (e.g., administration app allocations, protocols for scoring and results output, case-specific interpretive guides). Users also gain access to many free resources, including training videos on administration and coding, checklists to master administration, electronic templates for recording an administration, and printable or electronic templates for coding a record.
There are three primary types of accounts, clinical, teaching, and research, as described below. All accounts allow users to obtain a protocol allocation for a case. The protocol provides access to a coding interface and, when that is completed, to 6-pages of tabled scores and graphed results output.
Users can also choose to connect an administration app allocation to the protocol and use it as a structured guide to easily collect records with respondents, including an option for speech-to-text transcription. When finished, everything obtained in the app will then be available in the coding interface for that protocol.
Users with clinical or teaching accounts also can choose to attach an Interpretive Guide to their protocol, which provides both a general interpretation of each variable on the 2-pages of profiled results, and an interpretation of each variable that is tailored to the scores for that case.
Users can have multiple types of accounts and can also transfer or share protocols across accounts. Selecting a type of account below will open a new page that allows you to provide relevant information about your credentials.
Necessary for coding and scoring cases
Clinical account protocols provide the full display of all results (i.e., the Counts & Calculations page, the Page 1 and Page 2 Profiles, the EII-3 and Composite Calculations, and the Appendix information), the ability to print or store all pages of results, and the ability to download a data file containing all response-level codes or all protocol scores accompanied by normative data. The download can be for a single case or for many cases.
After users submit appropriate credentials, account approval typically occurs within two business days.
Necessary for coding and scoring cases
Teaching accounts are designed for university-based training programs. Teaching protocols provide the full display of all results (i.e., the Counts & Calculations page, the Page 1 and Page 2 Profiles, the EII-3 and Composite Calculations, and the Appendix information), the ability to print or store all pages of results, and the ability to download response level data for one or many protocols (e.g., to check coding accuracy for student assignments), but it does not provide the ability to download a data file containing the protocol level scores that would be used in research. A teaching account also provides the instructor with access to a large number of downloadable teaching resources (e.g., over 1,000 PowerPoint slides, helpful packets to teach administration, cases for coding practice). Teaching accounts can purchase electronic products (protocols, administration applications, and interpretive guides) at a 40% training discount.
After teachers submit credentials and a syllabus, account approval typically occurs within two business days.
Note: Users who provide structured, supervised training to students in a clinical setting that is outside of the university context can request a Clinical Training Account. This is a Standard Clinical Account that also provides access to our teaching resources. If you provide assessment training or supervision and wish to have a Clinical Training Account, apply for a Standard Clinical Account and send us documentation about your structured training or supervisory role using the link on our home page.
This account is for anyone engaged in research. Because the account is for research and not for practice, protocols do not have a Results link and thus do not provide a visual display of normed output (i.e., Counts and Calculations, Profile Pages, Composite Calculations, Appendix). With this account, users also do not have the option to attach an Interpretive Guide to a protocol. However, this account allows the user to download a data file containing all response level codes or all protocol level scores, including normative percentiles and standard scores for every variable. It also allows users to connect administration applications to protocols to substantially simplify collecting records. R-PAS is committed to supporting research, so protocol allocations are completely free and allocations of the administration application come at an 85% discount. After researchers submit a research account request, including a document describing the planned study, account approval typically occurs in less than one week.
