Sign up for Practice Tests


Take an SAT or ACT Practice Test:
On-site in the Greater Los Angeles Area or online at home


In-person practice testing has resumed in a limited capacity at some of our Los Angeles sites. See the schedule of upcoming dates by location below.

When signing up for an in-person digital test, please note that some school-issued devices, including Chromebooks, block the use of “unsecure” public wi-fi. Be sure to check your device’s permissions, or to plan to bring a personal device (i.e. laptop, tablet, etc.), prior to test day to ensure that you are able to test on-site without issue.


Take a test at home supervised by a live proctor online.
Online tests are offered nearly every weekend.

Please call us at (310) 550-0300 or email socal@compassprep.com to RSVP. 

Compass charges a $50 fee for online and in-person proctored practice tests.

As part of our Practice Test Donation Campaign, 10% of the proceeds from all practice tests will be donated to organizations that enact social change through educational programming! Click here to meet this quarter’s recipient and learn more the PTDC.

More Details

Compass provides a variety of options for clients and prospective clients to take practice SATs, PSATs, and ACTs under realistic conditions, and our reporting engine provides insights such as Similar Scorers, SAT/ACT Comparison, and Attractor Answers that no other score report can deliver. You can see one of our interactive score reports here.

For students just getting started, practice tests are an essential part of choosing a test, a timeline, and a plan for preparation. For students already working with Compass, practice tests are an essential part of our programs. See Making a Practice of Practice Testing for a detailed explanation of the benefits of practice testing.

It’s up to you whether you choose the flexibility of a self-administered test or the realism of taking a proctored test with other students. Your Compass director or tutor may make specific recommendations based on your needs. Compass directors are available to help you interpret your results and turn them into concrete decisions.

Self-administered exams: At your convenience.

We can set you up with a test and instructions for self-administration at home. We even have online videos to provide virtual proctoring. Once you complete the exam, you can enter your answers yourself for immediate results or let us handle it for you.

Proctored Practice Sessions: Professionally administered, structured environment.

Some students prefer having a live proctor to mimic the exact testing environment. We provide both online and in-person practice test sessions. Your full score report, including essay scoring, is generally available within two business days.
