About Altus Assessments

Altus Assessments is shaking up the higher-ed admissions space by delivering innovative professionalism screening tools that give admission teams a clearer and more holistic view of applicants.

Our primary product, CASPerâ„¢ started in development a decade ago at McMaster University, and has now been used by to screen over 100,000 academic applicants with good test reliability and predictive powers. The test is a form of situational judgement test (SJT) that uses everyday scenarios to evaluate candidates for universally useful traits like communication, ethics, professionalism and judgment.

For 2017, we will assess about 50% of all US Medical School applicants, about 75% of Canadian medical school applicants, and all applicants to Teachers Education in Victoria State Australia.
