Comparison of the English and French versions of the CASPer® Test in a bilingual population

Summary:

Many programs in Quebec and Ontario accept scores from both the English and French versions of CASPer, so it is important to ensure that an applicant is not advantaged or disadvantaged by taking one version over the other. There were some indications that the French version may be slightly more difficult than the English version of the CASPer test. However, it is unclear whether this difficulty is due to the difficulty of the individual test items or to differences in the characteristics of the cohort. Nevertheless, a comparison of the psychometric indicators suggests that both French and English versions of CASPer are psychometrically sound and equivalent.
