About the test

  • The Casper test comprises 12 sections of video and written scenarios.
  • Following each scenario, you will be required to answer a set of probing questions under a time contract.
  • The test typically takes between 75-90 minutes to complete.
  • Each response is graded by a different rater, giving a very robust and reliable view of personal and professional characteristics important to our program.
  • No studying is required for Casper, although you may want to familiarize yourself with the test structure at Acuity Insights, and ensure you have a quiet environment to take the test.

Casper test results are valid for one admissions cycle. Applicants who have already taken the test in previous years will therefore be expected to re-take it.
