Medical Schools Using CASPer

CASPer (Computer-Based Assessment for Sampling Personal Characteristics) is an online exam that is used increasingly in the medical school admissions process. It assesses an applicant’s situational judgment in various scenarios. According to the organization that administers the CASPer, it “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 admissions committees find it helpful, read this blog post from the company that administers the CASPer.
