If you need information on the official COMPASS test you can find it in the first section, Introduction to the COMPASS.
The Writing Skills, Writing Essay, Reading Comprehension, and Mathematics sections present the subject matter content included on the COMPASS.

Each sample test will be graded by the computer and you will have the opportunity to see the manner in which each item is correctly answered.
The area on the left contains a menu which you can use to guide your way through the course.
