What are Casper and Duet

Casper

An open-response, situational judgment test that evaluates aspects of your social intelligence and professionalism such as ethics, empathy, problem-solving and collaboration.

The following information is for the 2023/24 test cycle. For information about our 2022/23 test cycle, please visit our 2022/23 test cycle FAQ page.

 

  • 2 sections (video and typed response).
  • 15 scenarios (9 video-based and 6 word-based).
  • First section, video responses: 2 word-based and 4 video-based scenarios. For each scenario, 2 open-ended questions are presented one at a time and you are provided 1 minute to record each of your responses.
  • Second section, typed responses: 3 word-based and 5 video-based scenarios. For each scenario, 3 open-ended questions are presented together and you are provided a total of 5 minutes to respond to all 3 questions.
  • 100-120 minutes to complete.
  • You must reserve a specific date and time to take the Casper test. We recommend that you reserve your test at least 3 days in advance of your Casper test date to allow for time to prepare for the test by running through the system requirements check and taking the sample test. Check the Dates and fees page.

Duet is applicable for select programs only.
