Testing Profiles

About Testing Profiles

Tip: After making changes to testing profiles, you can Advance Generate Testing to make sure that your schedule comes out as expected.

Testing Profiles allow you to define how frequently a client is required to drug test. In drug courts, these profiles often line up with the Phases in your program. Each client is assigned to a testing profile which determines how frequently they will be tested, and which tests (panels) will be administered.

To Manage your Testing Profiles, Navigate to Settings > Testing Profiles.

Testing Profile Types

Best Practice: NADCP’s Best Practice Guide recommends that all Drug Court participants test at least 2 times per week, regardless of phase, and that you use the True Random profile type.

There are three types of testing profiles available:

  • Period Weekly: Allows you to set a number of tests per week.
  • Period Monthly: Allows you to set a number of tests per month.
  • True Random: Performs a truly random selection daily, with odds that you can specify.

Adding a New Profile

Adding a Profile

  • Navigate to Settings > Testing Profiles
  • Click “Add a Testing Profile” at the top of the page
  • Set a name for the new profile. This is the name you’ll use to refer to the testing profile when you’re setting up your clients.
  • Select the profile type you’d like to use. (See the Profile Type Descriptions above)
  • Add tests to the profile. By default, we do not try to combine these tests so that they fall on the same day. For more about how we can combine testing for you, see Lump Testing.
  • Set the test frequency (see below for more details on frequency).
  • Click “Save”

Testing Frequency: Period Weekly/Monthly

Did you know? You can enter a range in the frequency field, like 2-4 tests per week instead of 3 tests per week.

Period Weekly Testing

When setting up a profile with period weekly or monthly randomization, your frequency is the number of times in that period (week or month) that you’d like a participant to test. Call2test considers the week to start on Sunday and end on Saturday.

By default, we do not try to combine these tests so that they fall on the same day. For more about how we can combine testing for you, see Lump Testing.

Lump Testing

This feature is turned off by default to simplify the user interface. If you’d like to use this feature, please contact your account executive.

Period Weekly Testing

Lump Testing options are useful when you have more than one test type within a profile. Lump testing is only available for Period Weekly and Period Monthly test profiles. There are three settings for each profile for lump testing:

  • Always: This means that your client will always come in to test exactly the same number of times as their most frequent test type. In the example in the screenshot above, if lump testing were set to “Always”, clients with this profile would come in to test 3x/week, would drop a 5 Panel UA all three times, and an EtG one time.
  • Sometimes: This is the default setting, and means that we randomize all tests independently. In the example in the screenshot above, if lump testing were set to “Sometimes”, clients with this profile could come in to test 3x or 4x/week, and may have a day when they drop just an EtG some weeks, and other weeks may drop an EtG at the same time as a 5 Panel UA.
  • Never: This means that your client will never do multiple test types on the same day. In the example in the screenshot above, if lump testing were set to “Never”, clients with this profile would come in to test 4x/week, would drop a 5 Panel UA three times, and an EtG one time.

Max Days Between Tests

This feature is turned off by default to simplify the user interface. If you’d like to use this feature, please contact your account executive.

Max Days Between Tests

The Maximum Days Between Tests setting allows you to set the maximum number of days that any participant can go between testing. Max Days Between Tests is only available for Period Weekly and Period Monthly test profiles.
