The Testing Center administers COMPASS, a computer-adaptive placement test used by the college.
Appointments are not necessary for these untimed tests, but students who plan to take the entire
battery should arrive at least three hours before the center closes. Those who
are retesting or taking individual tests should allot one hour for each test.
If there is not enough time to complete the required tests, students will be asked to return at another time.
Students who are taking the diagnostic assessments must:
- Provide a current school or government-issued photo ID.
- Present a testing referral form completed by an advisor or personnel in Student Services.
- Turn off cell phones and any electronic devices.
- Bring a pencil or pen.
The college does provide graphing calculators upon request.
The following PowerPoint presentation provides information about how the test is structured and how
Wor-Wic uses the information to place students in appropriate English and math courses. Sample COMPASS
practices are also included within the presentation.
In addition, sample questions are available on the ACT website
and self-assessments can be found on the Test Prep Review website
under the COMPASS Test Practice link. Students may also purchase Math Prep for the COMPASS Exam or Verbal Prep for the COMPASS Exam from the Wor-Wic Bookstore.
Additional practice exercises appear below:
- Reading and Writing Practice Sites
