Feedback from Prior Sessions 

Terrific presenter and very attentive to participants' questions.
Absolutely incredible presentation- exactly what I was needing- something to help me in understanding the nuance of some of the more difficult responses. Thank you so much!
Appreciated how personable Don was and how open he was to answering any and all questions! 

Course Overview

  • This two-day online, intermediate, scoring workshop by Donald J. Viglione, Ph.D., is designed to help R-PAS users develop intermediate and advanced coding proficiency. Beginning with key principles for R-PAS coding, those attending this workshop will learn to identify and address the major sources of coding errors and inconsistencies. This will include learning coding terminology and procedures and learning about thresholds that distinguish the presence or absence of scoring codes. They will apply these principles and specific guidelines in sorting out recognizing distinctions between important and unimportant objects for purposes of Location and Form Quality coding, deciding between borderline cases of Space Reversal, Vague, and Synthesis responses, conducting reliable Form Quality extrapolations, discriminating among determinants close to the coding threshold, weighing the evidence in assigning cognitive codes at varying levels, and honing their skills in coding ODL, MAP, ABS, and other thematic elements. Helpful handouts will be provided.
