About Altus Assessments

What do we do?

We believe that great students are more than just book smart. Our software helps academic programs choose holistically exceptional applicants by providing reliable professionalism screening tests (like our signature CASPer(r) test) for use in the admission process. Think of CASPer like an "SAT" for non-academic traits.


The CASPer™ test was developed originally at McMaster University, and has been used to screen over 75,000 applicants for medicine and nursing schools in US and Canada over the last 5 years with good test reliability and predictive powers. The test uses everyday scenarios to evaluate for universally useful skills like communication, collaboration, advocacy ethics and judgment.

Who are we?

We’re a quirky, diverse and intellectual group of 20 working out of the OneEleven space in Toronto. We tackle some tough problems (like how to evaluate empathy in someone who wants to become a doctor), and some less tough ones (like what to bring in for the communal snack table).


Working with Altus means high career growth and impact. It also means learning a ton from brilliant coworkers, as well as directing your own personal and professional growth. Along with full benefits, enhanced parental leave and unlimited vacation, we provide you with a budget for learning. Use it for a professional workshop, or use it to learn the kazoo- we believe in supporting the whole you.


If you're ready to have a big impact, we'd love to meet you.
