WSASP is approved by the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) and by the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) to offer clock hours. WSASP’s annual events (Fall Conference, Summer Institute, Spring Lecture Series, and Graduate Student Conference) are approved by our board each year. If you are hosting an event and would like us to consider approving them for clock hours, please see the requirements for approval and directions to seek approval listed above.

No. In order to receive the clock hour documentation form, you must complete the digital attendance roster after the event. Once submitted, a hyperlink appears with directions to click the link to download the form.
Do I need a clock hour form for each session attended?
No. Clock hour forms are for documentation of an entire event such as Spring Lecture Series or Summer Institute, not for individual sessions within these events. You will evaluate each session and then get a single (1) clock hour form to document the entire event. EXAMPLE: I attended three sessions of Spring Lecture Series and submitted an evaluation form for each session immediately after each session. After the series ended, I completed the digital attendance roster and received one (1) clock hour form to document the three (3) hours I attended of the Spring Lecture Series.
Can I evaluate the entire event in one evaluation form?
No. The evaluation form can be completed a many times as needed and must be completed for each session that you attended in the event.
How do I document audience attendance when I host an event?
Audience attendance can be documented multiple ways. If hosting a virtual event, you can request your attendees to type their name into the chat box and save a copy of the chat box. If using Zoom, you can download an attendance report after the event. If hosting an in-person event, attendance can be documented by manually writing the names of each attendee. Email your attendance report to the Clock Hour Chair, Amanda Fleck, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
