Access to the 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. 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 protocol allocations for scoring, as well as the other items listed on our Products page that aid clinical practice. Users also gain access to many free resources, including 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 four primary types of accounts, as described below. All accounts allow users to enter codes for each response using two possible interfaces (the Tables or Point-and-Click interface). 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.
Standard Clinical Account:This provides 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 cost is USD $8.50 per protocol (but $11.75 per protocol if purchasing 5 or fewer). After users submit appropriate credentials, account approval typically occurs within two business days.
Approved Teaching Account:
This account is designed for university-based training. It provides 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 (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, a packet of materials to teach the basics of administration, and cases for coding practice). The cost is USD $5.10 per protocol, which is a 40% training discount, though there is a minimum purchase of 10 protocols. After teachers submit a training grant request and credentials, account approval typically occurs within five 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 structured assessment training in a clinical site and wish to have a Clinical Training Account, apply for a Standard Clinical Account and then please send us documentation about your structured training 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). However, this account allows the user to download a data file containing all response level codes and all protocol level scores, including normative percentiles and standard scores for every variable. It also allows users to attach electronic administration applications to protocols. R-PAS is committed to supporting research, so protocol allocations are completely free and allocations of the administration application have a 90% discount. After researchers submit a research account request and supporting materials, account approval typically occurs in less than one week.
Users may be asked to allow R-PAS to use their stored data for system development research. After researchers submit a research grant request and supporting credentials, account approval typically occurs in less than two weeks.
