KIPS Annual Check-Up Revised
Maintaining KIPS certification requires passing the online KIPS Annual Check-Up. We have just released a revision of the KIPS Annual Check-Up. The new version offers an optional self-assessment opportunity. The KIPS Annual Check-Up exams test to see if the user can correctly identify both low and high scoring behaviors in a single play video. The new version offers two such examples, which the user can access before proceeding to the required exams.
To activate the self-assessment, select the "Check my skills" button on the KIPS Annual Check-Up home page, as
shown here. After taking the two practice tests, a recommendation is given. If the user shows over 80% reliability, the recommendation is to proceed to the recertification exam. As usual, each KIPS user has three chances to show 80% reliability. In the self-assessment, if the user shows less than 80% reliability, ta
king a KIPS refresher course is recommended. For those taking a refresher, a credit for the amount paid for the KIPS Annual Check-Up is applied to the cost of the refresher course. We hope this ability to check observation and scoring skills prior to the exam will make the process more approachable. As discussed in the next issue of KIPS TIPS, the KIPS Library has a set of searchable videos that can be used to maintain KIPS scoring skills. You may order the Library at a discounted price by ordering the Special Bundle of the Annual Check-Up and Library on our website, www.ComfortConsults.com.
