Altus Suite is comprised of two online assessments, CASPer and Snapshot which assess non-cognitive skills and interpersonal characteristics that we believe are important for successful students and graduates of our program and will complement the other tools that we use for applicant screening. In piloting Altus Suite, Bellevue College’s ADN program is trying to further enhance fairness and objectivity in our selection process.
Bellevue College will be covering the cost of the assessment and distribution of results to UTHSC San Antonio Nursing. All qualified applicants will be provided a code to select an assessment date through Nursing CAS. This assessment will not be used for determining entry in to our winter 2022 cohort.
CASPer assessment results are only valid for one admissions cycle and are only shared with schools the applicant chooses to distribute the results to. Applicants who wish to apply for participating programs next admissions cycle will therefore be expected to re-take it.
