Online USPAP FAQs
Find Answers to Your Questions
Most processes for AI’s online programs apply to USPAP programs as well, but there are some exceptions.
The Appraisal Foundation (TAF) mandates the design of online USPAP courses. TAF requires students to achieve 100% quiz mastery in a minimum of two passes through the content of each module. The exception to this rule is when you achieve 100% quiz mastery in the first pass. In this case, you do not need to achieve additional passes and can move on to the next module. If you don’t achieve 100% mastery in the first pass, you must complete as many passes as necessary to achieve 100%. If you get less than 50% in the first pass, the attempt is assumed to be guessing, and is not counted. The system resets any mastery for this pass to 0%. The first and second passes display the course content along with the quiz questions. After the second pass, you only attempt the quiz questions without viewing the course content. When the remaining number of questions to be mastered for the module is less than five, the system adds filler questions to bring the count to a minimum of five. You’ll also complete a pre-course and post-course diagnostic quiz to measure learning in the course.
- Operating systems: Windows 7 minimum; Mac 10.8.3 minimum.
- Browsers: Microsoft Edge, Goggle Chrome: latest release and latest – 1 release. Apple Safari, Google Chrome: latest release and latest – 1 release.
We do not formally support the use of mobile devices/browsers for USPAP. However, the application functions well with a minimum of iOS 7 on an iPad 1, iPad 2, and iPad 3, with the Safari mobile browser.
- USPAP courses have a fixed screen resolution. Adjust screen resolution to something more than 800 x 600. Somewhere around at least 1024 x 768 should work.
- To adjust the screen resolution in Windows, right click on an empty space anywhere on your desktop and a box will appear. Click on Display Settings (Win 10) or Screen Resolution (Win 7). Make the resolution adjustment, click Apply, then select Keep (Win 10) or OK (Win 7).
- Once you have started the course, you can log off by clicking on "Exit Course" in the top right area and return into the system later exactly where you left off.
- After you have mastered a module, you can always review the module using the Menu icon in the upper left-hand corner. You can review in one of three ways: content only, quiz questions only, or content and quiz questions.
- During review, the quiz questions work exactly as they did before, but since you have already mastered them, nothing is being tracked. You can review as little or as much as you wish.
