The Price of Poor Professionalism

There is a great deal of research within medicine around the cost of poor professionalism, showing that the majority of medico-legal complaints are due to professionalism issues; not knowledge-based issues. A clear link has also been made between issues in the classroom and issues in the professional world. It follows that these issues also likely exist in most other professional programs including education, business, nursing, engineering, and dentistry.


What Priorities Drove CASPer Development?


1 / Validation

Ensuring we maximize the reliability and meaningful prediction of
future performances.


2 / Access

Geographic, differential, and financial backgrounds, not adding
unnecessary barriers.


3 / Data Driven

Continuous research including QA/QI and collaborations with our
partnered institutions.

Reliability and Predictive Validity

Reliability and predictive validity are both necessary for tools used in high stakes admissions. Both are scored between 0.0 – 1.0. Reliability reveals whether a test can consistently discriminates between high and low performers and should be above 0.6.

Predictive validity reveals whether the test correlates with future endpoints and admissions tools tend to be in the range of 0.3 and 0.5. Both are necessary and can be found in the CASPer test in research done in medical education admissions.



CASPer ranges from 0.7 – 0.8 making it a very reliable assessment.



Predictive Validity


CASPer gives additive value over MMI (and other measures of personal/professional qualities).
