COMPASS

The Compass test will no longer be available after November 30, 2016. 

(SCC will still accept Compass scores for the next 5 years.)

 

COMPASS

COMPASS is an untimed, computer-adaptive college placement test given at Kentucky high schools to grade 12 students that have not met the Council on Postsecondary Education's (CPE) benchmarks on the ACT (English - 18, Math - 19, Reading - 20).

 

Meeting the benchmarks on this assessment benefits:
  • Students and Parents by allowing placement into college credit-bearing courses rather than developmental classes in which the students do not earn credit but do have to pay for
  • Schools by improving the College and/or Career Readiness Rate
  • Postsecondary institutions by reducing the need for remedial classes.


 
COMPASS Benchmarks for passing:
     Writing/English - 74
     Math - 36 (50 to eliminate the College Algebra lab)
     Reading - 85
