Materials required for an AMPS Course


AMPS manual: One printed copy of the AMPS manual will be supplied to each course participant on the first day of the course.

The AMPS software converts a person's raw scores for two or more ADL tasks into linear ability measures, while simultaneously adjusting those ability measures for the challenge of the tasks and the severity of the examiner who scored the person’s performance. Resulting measures are a quantitative representation of a person’s overall ability to perform ADL tasks. On completion of the 5-day AMPS course an individual passcode will be supplied for each participant to download their own personal copy of the AMPS software.
