SESSION 1: "Preparation for the C.L.A.S.S. Evaluator Examination"

Friday, October 19, 5:30 pm-7:00 pm
This presentation will give attendees an overview of the information needed to successfully pass the 3-part C.L.A.S.S. Evaluator exam and become an official C.L.A.S.S. Evaluator. We will go through the test items for each C.L.A.S.S. Evaluation level, and review the Evaluation rules and guidelines. (Presenter: Ann Allums) Note: Attending this session does not guarantee that the candidate will pass the Evaluator exam.  (Open to non-members.)

SESSION 2: "C.L.A.S.S. Evaluator Examination"

Friday, October 19, 7:30 pm to whenever candidate completes each part of the exam, no later than 10:30 pm
Attendees will take a standardized, non-computerized version of the C.L.A.S.S. Evaluator examination. The Evaluator examination is comprised of three sections: General C.L.A.S.S. questions, Training and Behavior questions, and Video assessment. Candidates are allowed to refer to the C.L.A.S.S. Handbooks throughout the exam, and should bring their own digital or hard copy of the Evaluator Handbook to the exam. The Evaluator fee, payable after candidates complete and pass the exam, is $25 (discounted from $40) for candidates who pass the exam during this session. (Presenter, Facilitator: Ann Allums). NOTE: Attendees must have a C.L.A.S.S. Evaluator ID to register. See this page for qualifications of becoming an Evaluator and to obtain an Evaluator ID.

(Note: Taking the Evaluator exam during this session does not guarantee that the candidate will pass the Evaluator exam at that time. If the candidate does not pass, that candidate may retake the parts not passed after at least 24 hours.)

NOTE: You must be already registered for the APDT Conference in order to sign up for a C.L.A.S.S. session.
