Fast and Accurate Placement

As a computer-adaptive test, the ACT Compass program adjusts the item difficulty level to the skills of the individual student, eliminating items that are too easy or too difficult and that contribute little to the measurement. Such flexibility reduces the number of items and testing time, while maintaining the accuracy of placement results.

ACT Compass results are available within seconds upon completion of testing, with a hard copy for the student and multiple reporting formats for the test administrator. Batch results can also be uploaded to your campus information system.
