hey, is that true ? I can't find the «snapshot» specificity on their website. 

I hope not, because from what I read, it is like a mini-MMI where you record your answers......

I can't find it on the official website either, but I just found this screenshot on another forum from someone who emailed them. Part of me is really hoping that this is just a photoshopped image but honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if it was required.

yeah they have to really careful with the language here - "recommended" is not the same as "required". 

I am assuming it is actually required.

Am I wrong here to expect that people would respond more positively to this requirement? CASPer has been known to be extremely biased against non-native English speakers and slow typers, as well as providing a rather artificial perspective of the candidates' potential. Doing the Snapshot will provide candidates with a chance to more realistically present themselves than a few hundread keystrokes, won't it?

Soz just a bit confused. I would have so appreciated Snapshot in addition to typed responses for my cycle. :D
