Selection made easier with a complete picture of your applicants
Assessments work together seamlessly
Each unique assessment focuses on different competencies and attributes, but they work together to paint a more complete picture of your applicants.
Validate your decisions
Built on years of research, these standardized assessments provide you with peace of mind when making decisions.
Screen applicants for non-cognitive competencies like ethics, empathy, and collaboration using Casper test scores.
Evaluate applicants for ‘fit’ by understanding how their values align with your program’s to help identify great applicants for interviews or offers.
Further probe applicants’ communication skills and motivation with a short video-response tool when you need an additional data point or a tie-breaker.
Tie together all the assessments and data points in one place to make informed decisions.
