About CASPer®

The CASPer test is an online screening tool designed to evaluate key personal and professional characteristics that make for successful students and graduates.

Traditional evaluations of personal characteristics (e.g. standard interviews, reference letters, and personal essays) have shown to be ineffective in discerning good applicants. CASPer increases fairness in applicant evaluation by providing admissions and selection committees with a reliable measure of traits like professionalism, ethics, communication, and empathy.

For more information about why academic programs adopt CASPer, you can read our blog post “Standing Out From the Pack: How CASPer Helps Applicants and Admissions Teams”.

The CASPer test is delivered by Altus Assessments.
