Compass Test

    Compass is a computerized form of placement testing developed by ACT. COMPASS (Computer-adapted Placement Assessment and Support Services) is an un-timed test that adjusts to your level in reading, writing and math.
    You do not need computer experience to take this test. You may bring a calculator or use the graphing calculator built in to the software. The following calculators are not allowed: Pocket organizers, Handheld or laptop computers, Electronic writing pads or pen-input devices, Models with a QWERTY (typewriter) keypad, Models with built-in capability to simplify algebraic expressions, multiply polynomials, or factor polynomials such as CFX-9970G, TI-89, and TI-92.
    Your test results will be printed immediately upon completion of the test and you may retest at that time in any area in which you feel you could do better. Although the test is un-timed, it takes approximately two (2) hours to complete.
