ipasscode.com, a new entry point for the existing ipasscode.com system, offers innovative new testing features to professional users. ipasscode.com provides individual and group test referrals for clinical and research applications. For individual testing, a new dashboard permits ipasscode referralsto be issued in a single step. For research applications, subject data can be imported from an existing spreadsheet and ipasscode.com referrals can be batched to the entire sample using parameters set by the investigator. ipasscode.com uses the 'passcode referral method', the only available methodology that allows professionals to utilize every assessment tool in a system without having to purchase anything.
Signing up to use ipasscode.com is free; the professional submits his/her academic or licensing/certification credentials and agrees to use the site within the scope of their professsional competence. When approved, an ipasscode account is created for the professional. From this account ipasscodes can be issued to individuals in the approved professional's area of practice.
Most users issue ipasscode testing referrals with "client payment" where the cost of the testing is borne by the person for whom the test is intended (or their caregiver). If desired, a professional may purchase assessments using an account balance kept on the site (professional payment) and bill the client separately. Alternatively, 'contract'uses may be purchased in bulk from the professional's account. With professional and contract payment, financial arrangements are transparent to the client/patient user who completes the rating measure.
A number of measures have been licensed from their publishers. Adult measures such as the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI-II), the Beck Anxiety Inventory, Caterino Adult ADHD Scale and Parenting Satisfaction Scales are on the system. The Dunn Adolescent/Adult Sensory Profile is also now ready for use. For children and adolescents, the Beck Youth Inventories and the Brown ADD Scales are available. B-DI publications, such as The Carey Temperament Scales, the Adult Temperament Questionnaire of Thomas and Chess (ATQ2), the BASICS Behavioral Adjustment Scale and TACTIC are also currently on the system.
