Question : CASPer Computer-Based Assessment

All applicants to the Traditional and accelerated (UCAN) Pathways at the University of Colorado College of Nursing are required to complete the CASPer online assessment, to assist with our selection process. Successful completion of CASPer is mandatory in order to maintain admission eligibility.

CASPer is an online test which assesses non-cognitive skills and interpersonal characteristics that we believe are important for successful students and graduates of our program, and will complement the other tools that we use for applicant screening. By implementing CASPer, we are trying to further enhance fairness and objectivity in our selection process. The CASPer test is comprised of 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 www.takeCASPer.com, and ensure you have a quiet environment to take the test.

Test results are valid for one CASPer application cycle. Additionally, applicants may only take the test one time per CASPer cycle. Applicants who have previously taken the test and are not sure if fulfills the CU Nursing application requirement should contact nursing.admissions@ucdenver.edu.

In order to take CASPer, you will be responsible for securing access to a computer with audio capabilities, a webcam, and a reliable internet connection on your selected test date. CASPer can be taken practically anywhere that you can satisfy the aforementioned requirements. No exceptions will be provided for applicants unable to take CASPer online due to being located at sites where internet is not dependable due to technical or political factors.
