CASPer Test


  • What is the CASPer test?

    CASPer is a form of situational judgment test. Situational judgment tests (SJTs) are a type of psychological test which presents the test-taker with realistic, hypothetical scenarios and may ask the individual what they would do in the dilemma and why they would do it. Situational judgment tests tend to determine behavioral tendencies, assessing how an individual will behave in a certain situation, and knowledge instruction, which evaluates the effectiveness of possible responses.

  • What is the format of the CASPer test?

    Each section contains a video-based or word-based scenario and three open-ended questions. Test takers have five minutes to type their responses to all three questions. CASPer progresses from one section to the next automatically. It typically takes 60-90 minutes to complete with an optional 15-minute break halfway through.

  • Where can I take the CASPer test?

    You can take the online CASPer test on a computer and at a location of your choice. Since the test requires your full concentration, it is strongly recommend that you take the test in a space that is free from distractions and noise.

  • How much does the CASPer test cost?

    The veterinary medicine test for CASPer is $60 plus $16 per school you choose to send test scores to.

  • How many times can I take the CASPer test?

    You can only take the test once per admission cycle. Tests are not carried over from year to year so if you have to re-apply, you will need to take the test again the next cycle.

  • When is the deadline to take the CASPer test?

    The last test date for the 2023 cycle is September 28. Applicants applying in the 2023 cycle who haven’t taken the test by September 28 will not be eligible to apply.
