CASPer Testing

Developed by researchers in Ontario, Canada, CASPer is “an online screening tool designed to evaluate key personal and professional characteristics that make for successful students and graduates.”  This tool has recently been implemented for use in several medical schools across the United States as another mechanism by which to evaluate potential admits.  Currently, medical, optometry, pharmacy, veterinary, dental, and nursing programs in Canada are also using this tool.

CASPer testing does come with a fee which is paid by the student.  For additional information, please go to: https://takecasper.com/aboutcasper
