Casper Information

All applicants to the Bachelor of Midwifery Program at Mount Royal University are required to complete an online assessment, Casper, to be eligible for admission. Casper is an online test that assesses for the personal and professional characteristics we believe are important for successful students and graduates of our program. It is a compliment to the other tools that we use for applicant screening. 

The Casper test is comprised of 12 sections: 8 video-based and 4 word-based scenarios. Following each scenario, you will be required to answer a set of 3 probing questions in 5 minutes or less. Halfway through the test, there is an optional 10-minute break. The test typically takes between 60-90 minutes to complete. 

Each of the 12 responses are anonymized and scored by a unique rater, giving a robust and reliable impression of your personal and professional characteristics important to our program. No studying is required, however, you are encouraged to familiarize yourself with the test format via the System Requirements Check and 12 section practice test prior to taking Casper. 

Additional helpful resources are available free of charge to help you prepare. Casper test results are valid for one admissions cycle. Applicants who have already taken Casper in previous years will be expected to re-take the test. For a more detailed look at the Casper test, please see this video.
