Complex FPPE in stationary conditions has been carried out in 82 cases (28,3 % of the all research groups) of which 72 patients or 86.5 % were adults and 12 children, 13.5 %; complex FPNE in stationary conditions were carried out in 13 cases (4.5 % of all research groups) all being mature individuals and complex FPSE in stationary conditions amounted 1 % of all research groups with three cases, all adults.

For example, the FPSE
scale addresses the foundation objectives as written in the 2001 Education and Policy Accreditation Standards (EPAS) and is useful for all accredited programs that must provide evidence that their curricula meet expected basic educational outcomes for entry level practice.
Although both KSE and FPSE configurations have demonstrated operation in excess of 5,000 hours, (1) it is not clear is that they have demonstrated the longevity required for RCHP.
Today, approximately a dozen organizations worldwide are working to develop KSEs or FPSEs. In addition, at least one manufacturer sells a Stirling-based RCHP system in Japan, with multiple manufacturers expecting to launch similar products in Europe within the next year.
Evidence supporting the psychometric properties of the data obtained using the FPSE was found in a prior study (Holden, Anastas, & Meenaghan, 2003).
As this was the second study of the FPSE, it was designed as a direct replication that was as similar as possible to the original study (following Rosenthal's 1990 conception of the replication battery).
The present study was undertaken to continue development of the FPSE and to assess MSW students' changes in self-efficacy with respect to the foundation-level practice competencies.
The FPSE was developed to provide the profession with a standardized measure capable of assessing attainment of the foundation-year objectives of the EPAS.
The second administration contained a retrospective pretest for the FPSE, which is referred to as the thentest, to assess the presence of response shift bias (e.g., Howard & Dailey, 1979; Howard, Daily, & Gulanick, 1979; Howard et al., 1979; Riley & Greene, 1993; Robinson & Doueck, 1994;_Sprangers, 1988).
Table I provides descriptive data for the individual items on the FPSE. Mean scores for individual items range from 40.0 to 82.3.
Over the course of the academic year students increased their self-efficacy on all 31 FPSE items from pretest to posttest.
