Compass Assessment

What is COMPASS?

COMPASS is an assessment test given to all students before they start their programs. COMPASS tests students in mathematics and reading. The mathematics section will test students on operations with integers, operations with fractions, operations with decimals, exponents, square roots, radicals, ratios, proportions, percentages, and averages (mean, median, and mode). The reading section checks pre-start students in reading comprehension and vocabulary.

Why do we use COMPASS?

COMPASS is used to help us evaluate each individual's strengths and weaknesses. Based on the scores we can then recommend remediation tutoring to help the pre-start students brush up on some of their weak spots.
