Key Features

This CASPer exam is designed to assess applicants to a huge array of different healthcare courses, who will have very different educational backgrounds and different professional goals. You should therefore not expect there to be any specific knowledge required, nor will there be specific ethical guidelines that you ought to follow or revise beforehand.

Raters are drawn from across the entire country of Canada. They will have a variety of backgrounds and life experiences. The aim with the selection of these raters was to represent the patient background of the entire country. Therefore they are likely not to be healthcare professionals themselves, but will have undergone a great deal of training from the CASPer team in order to make sure that they are able to mark the tests correctly. You should therefore not use technical terms or terminology learnt in the healthcare field, nor should you expect any already-gained healthcare experience to furnish any advantage, for those that have it.

You should expect this CASPer test to draw evenly from each of the ten core attributes and tendencies that CASPer assesses. These are: collaboration, communication, empathy, equity, ethics, motivation, problem solving, professionalism, resilience and self awareness. As this exam is built to assess students applying to such a range of courses, you should not expect there to be any bias toward a particular area of the core attributes – you should work on all areas.

Core Components

This CASPer exam will feature 15 scenarios, which are broken down into two sections. There will be ten video scenarios and five text scenarios. The first section features 9 scenarios, each of which features three questions that you must write a response to. You have five minutes in total to write your response to the three questions. The second section features 6 scenarios, and you must video record your answers here. You will have one minute per question, and as before there are three questions on each scenario. The total exam takes 100-120 minutes, depending on whether you take breaks. You may take a break during the first section, and before the second section begins.

Preparation for this CASPer

For this CASPer exam, you should follow our general preparation tips. You should look to start your preparation around two months before your test, in order to make sure that you are able to learn and reinforce the correct types of response. You should commence by working on your understanding of the test itself, and its aims, before moving on to practice questions. Combine practice questions with model answers to ensure that you are learning, and focusing on the correct areas. Treat all domains of the CASPer with equal respect – do not prioritise any one area over the other, bar to correct your weaknesses.
