The CASPer® (Computer-Based Assessment for Sampling Personal Characteristics) Test is an online open-response situational judgment test (SJT) created by researchers at McMaster University over a period of 7 years. Its purpose is to provide a fair assessment in evaluating one’s non-cognitive skills and, key interpersonal and decision-making characteristics like professionalism, collaboration, communication, motivation, ethics and empathy, to name a few.
Applicants to a large number of healthcare professional programs are required to complete the CASPer® Test to assist with the school’s selection process. Many schools want to ensure their students possess, in addition to a strong academic background, suitable personal and professional attributes for working successfully in the profession. For many programs, it is the only assessment required for that school’s application process. For other programs, the CASPer® Test is completed to determine who will receive an invitation to the school’s interview or, to complete another aspect of the application process.
To help you prepare for your CASPer® Test, Blue Dolphin Training and Coaching will present you with a large number of video and worded scenarios in which you will be required to complete a video response of one minute each for some scenarios and a typed response for others in which you will have a timed five minutes to complete three questions. Following each CASPer® Test prep session, your responses to both video and typed questions are reviewed by us and an evaluation, with helpful tips on enhancing your response, is provided to you.
Blue Dolphin Training and Coaching has been offering CASPer® Test preparation sessions since 2017. Most students who complete CASPer® Test prep sessions with us have scored in the 4th quartile when they completed the actual CASPer® Test. Other students reach their personal best of surpassing their quartile rating from a previous test, usually going from 2nd quartile to 3rd quartile.
