Welcome to the CASPer® test by MD Consultants

Please read all the instructions on this page before starting your test.

This is a full-length practice CASPer® test with 12 full sections.

Instructions:

Once you start the test, it must be completed in a single sitting. You will be unable to pause or go back in the test. There will be an optional 15 minute break mid-way through the exam. This is to mimic the real exam sitting. You will only be able to complete the exam once, but, depending on your package, you will be able to review your answers afterwards. If you do not receive your answers, please contact us to gain access to them.

There are 12 sections in this exam, each with three short-answer responses for you to complete. 8 of the sections will be prompted by situational challenges through a short video clip scenario and 4 of the sections will be simply text-based. For all video questions, you will be given 30 seconds before the video to understand your role in the scenario. After the video scenario, you will be given three short-answer questions. You will have a total of 5 minutes to answer typed responses to all three questions combined. You must budget your time accordingly.

If you complete your responses early, you may choose to move forward in the exam. Otherwise, after 5 minutes, your answers will be automatically saved and you will be transferred to the next section.

A timer at the top of each page will show you how much time you have left before being forced to the next section.

Keep in mind that on the real CASPer® test, each of the sections are marked by different evaluators. Therefore, you may re-use the same example or answer in different sections. However, as a result, you cannot refer to old responses.

At the end of the exam, you will be prompted for feedback. We would be happy to hear about how we can improve your experience.

The exam takes approximately 90 minutes to complete. We wish you the best of luck!
