CASPer® Test Requirements
An online test is suspected to replace interviews for many health programs as the university becomes the first in Quebec to implement the test d’évaluation des compétences transversales (TECT), based on the CASPer® test developed by McMaster University, which assesses non-cognitive skills and interpersonal characteristics.
TECT will be used to assess all students applying to dentistry, veterinary medicine, pharmacy, optometry and medicine. Students applying to all those programs will have to take the test starting now for their fall 2017 applications, with the exception of medicine, which will only institute the change for 2018.
In all cases — except for medical students — the combination of the TECT test, plus their marks, will replace any interviews. For medical students, TECT will help with the selection process for interviews, which will still be required.
