Reducing demographic differences in college admissions

In today’s episode, we sit down with Dr. Alex MacIntosh, a Scientist and Senior Manager of Research at Acuity Insights, to talk about demographic differences in college and university admissions and how that relates to the Casper test. Unlike academic tests, Casper is a Situational Judgment (SJT) that measures non-academic skills such as communication, collaboration, problem solving and leadership. By measuring these skills, Casper provides a more holistic view of applicants rather than just academic measures, and has been shown to reduce demographic differences in the admissions process. Alex gives us insights into how and why this is the case.
