See how Casper by Acuity Insights shows meaningful and actionable relationships with selection, admissions performance, in-program and work-placement performance.

In academic literature and program-specific quality assurance studies, Casper shows meaningful and actionable relationships with selection, admissions performance, in-program and work-placement performance.

Casper and admissions performance

Studies show significant associations between Casper and admissions outcomes, including faculty interview, multiple-mini interview, and faculty rank list position. Across quality assurance studies from 19 programs and 56,000 applicants, higher Casper scores relate to higher odds of being selected for an interview/MMI, performing well in the interview/MMI, and ultimately being accepted into the program.

Casper, in-program performance and beyond

In addition to Casper’s impactful relationships with admissions performance, Casper increasingly shows meaningful relationships with evaluations of personal, interpersonal, and professional traits in various contexts, including predicting on national licensure exam performances, work placements and fieldwork evaluations including clerkship honors status. These relationships help identify students with exceptional or concerning professional behaviors, aiding programs in reducing professionalism issues, lowering remediation costs, and supporting students poised to effectively serve their communities. Using Casper has also been linked to fewer medical residents requiring formal learning interventions.
