What are Pearson Clinical Assessment Class Packs?

Pearson Clinical Assessment Class Packs are offered through Pearson Assessment for the digital administration and scoring of some of their tests. The Class Packs are broken down into different content areas. For digital scoring purposes, if the item is available through a Course Pack, the Library will not purchase usages and instead requires that an assessment Course lead submit the Class Pack roster form on behalf of all of the assessment sessions that they lead.

Please Review the information in the table below for more information about Class Packs and to download a roster form.

Class Packs Roster Forms should be submitted to the library through the Digital Scoring Usage Form. Do not worry about the Q-Global account number when filling out the form, the Library includes that information when it submits all Class Packs to Pearson.

Click Add to automatically send the clinician an email that includes instructions and a link to accept the invitation to join PARiConnect. You will receive an email after the clinician has set up their account.

To import clinicians, information must be in a .csv file format. This type of file can be opened in Microsoft Excel or any text-handling software, such as Microsoft Notebook, as well as most statistics programs like SPSS.

The required fields for import are First Name, Last Name, and Email. Be careful to avoid any characters such as quotation marks or invalid email formats. The file will display one clinician per row. In each row, the data is entered in order, one at a time, into each cell.

See below for example:

A sample file is available for download from the Import Clinicians screen.

*Note: It is strongly encouraged to use the sample file as a template for creating an import file to avoid issues during the import process

To invite multiple clinicians at once:
  1. Create a .csv file with the format as described above.
  2. Under Account Management, click the Clinicians tab, then the Import Clinicians button. You can also do this by selecting Clinicians in the top menu bar.
  3. Browse for the file you want to import by clicking on the Choose File (CSV) button. In the open dialog box, choose your file, then click Open. The screen will display the file name to be uploaded; click the Read File button to import.
  4. The clinician info will appear on your screen in separate data fields. The fields can all be edited on-screen to correct misspelled names or make other changes. Any errors in formatting will show the data box outlined in red and the reason for the error will appear on the right side of the screen under the Error column.
  5. After making any changes to the data, click the Import Clinicians button to send the email invitations to all listed clinicians. Confirmation text will appear showing that PARiConnect has emailed an invitation to the person(s) at the specified email address(es).
