The COMPASS Reading Comprehension test is designed to measure how well you understand what you read. The reading test contains 20 questions of two primary types.
Narrative questions require you to read a statement or passage and then choose the best answer to the question. These questions should be answered on the basis of what is stated or implied in the statement or passage.
Sentence Relationship Questions
Sentence Relationship questions have two underlined sentences that are followed by a question or statement about them. This type of question requires you to read each pair of sentences and then choose the best answer to the question or the best completion of the statement.
