Casper assesses applicants’ social intelligence and professionalism using an open-response format that allows applicants to justify their reasoning and express their values.

Where most closed-response situational judgment tests look at the applicant’s ability to identify expected behaviors by choosing among prescribed solutions, Casper allows applicants to put their unique perspectives and lived experience into context and apply it to the situation before them.

The open-response format makes a meaningful positive impact for people from different demographic groups. Work published in the Journal of Applied Psychology shows that the open-response format in SJTs contributes to substantial reductions in minority-majority differences without impairing validity.

We test ourselves, too.
