Factors to Consider When Scheduling Your CASPer Test

When it comes to scheduling your CASPer test, here are some essential considerations:

Preparation Time

Consider how much time you'll need to prepare for the CASPer test. It's essential to dedicate sufficient time to familiarize yourself with the test format, practice answering situational judgment questions, and develop your writing skills. Typically, a few weeks of preparation are recommended.

Personal Schedule

Take into account your personal schedule and commitments. Ensure that your chosen test date doesn't conflict with other important obligations, such as work, classes, or travel plans.

Time Zone Considerations

CASPer dates are scheduled based on Eastern Standard Time (EST). If you're in a different time zone, adjust the test time to your local time zone to avoid any confusion on the test day.

Availability of Accommodations

If you require accommodations due to a disability or medical condition, contact the CASPer test administrators in advance to arrange for appropriate accommodations. Ensure that your chosen test date allows enough time for this process.

Test Scores Release Timeline

When scheduling your test date, it's crucial to consider how long it will take for your scores to be released. CASPer scores are automatically sent to the programs you've selected approximately 2-3 weeks after your test date. 

This timing is important to ensure that your scores reach the programs in time to meet their application deadlines. Once sent, programs typically update application statuses within their individual application portals. Therefore, select a test date that aligns with your program's deadline and allows sufficient time for score transmission.
