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.
