What is CASPer?

CASPer stands for computer-based assessment for sampling personal characteristics and is an online situational judgment test – essentially it's an online version of the MMI. Situational judgment tests are a type of psychological test used to screen applicants. CASPer simulates realistic hypothetical scenarios and asks the test taker how they would respond, what they would do when faced with a certain dilemma, and why. CASPer takes roughly 90 minutes to complete and has an optional 15-minute break halfway through. There are 12 sections, each comprised of a text-based or video-based scenario and three questions. CASPer is a timed test with test-takers having 5 minutes each, per scenario, to type out their answers to 3 questions. Refer to our CASPer test prep blog for additional information about what you need to know to ace the CASPer test.

What is the purpose of CASPer?

CASPer creators claim that it is designed to test for personal and professional characteristics including collaboration, communication, empathy, equity, ethics, problem solving, professionalism, resilience and self-awareness. However, studies suggest that it may not be able to measure any of the claimed attributes and they have also shown that situational judgement tests can cause bias. It's often used as an intermediary step between applicants and in-person interviews so that admissions committees can assess candidate suitability for the profession before they invite applicants to an in-person interview. CASPer is used in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Refer to our blogs for a list of all schools that use CASPer, and for CASPer test dates

CASPer Test & Multiple Mini Interview (MMI) Seem to be Highly Coachable, New BeMo® Study Reveals

2.5K

Applicants Significantly Improve Their MMI & CASPer Practice Scores with BeMo®

Arguably, the most challenging parts of the admissions process for many applicants are the dreaded situational judgement tests CASPer and the Multiple Mini Interview (MMI interview). 

Applicants are generally not provided with detailed instructions on how to prepare in advance by official admissions and test administrators. In fact, a handful of official sources claim that it is not possible to prepare in advance for such tests and going as far as claiming that such tests are "immune to test preparation" and encouraging applicants to "be yourself". 

We have already highlighted the myths about such claims in a previous report and we have advised future applicants to aspire to be their "best self" instead as part of their life-long journey of becoming future practicing professionals. We have also argued in this report that situational judgement tests are coachable just like any other tests. 

In a new study highlighted here, we provide formal proof that both CASPer and MMI are highly coachable and applicants can significantly improve their practice scores with appropriate preparation.

Highlights:

  • MMI and CASPer practice scores increased 23-27% on average with BeMo preparation programs, respectively. 
  • Applicants’ CASPer practice scores improved significantly by 10 percentage points going from a baseline average of 53% before preparation to 63% after just 3 preparatory sessions.
  • On the other hand, applicants’ MMI practice scores improved significantly by 15 percentage points from a baseline of 66% to 81%. 
  • While CASPer practice test performance required only 3 coaching sessions to show improvements, MMI practice performance normally required at least 6 preparatory sessions to show improvement.
