In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and in an abundance of caution, Compass has suspended all in-person proctored practice tests. Students still have the opportunity to self-proctor practice tests at home, and to take proctored practice tests supervised by an online proctor via Zoom:
- SAT and ACT practice tests with regular time are offered at 9:00am and 1:00pm Eastern
- SAT and ACT practice tests with extended time are offered at 12:30pm Eastern
- Other accommodations and test types may be available upon request

Call (212) 381-4421
Available tests include the ACT, SAT, PSAT, SAT Subject Tests, ISEE, and SSAT.
Students with extended time will be accommodated if advance notice is provided.
Space is limited and reservations are required. We are often able to confirm registrations as late as the Friday before the test date if space is available. However, we are not able to accept walk-ins.
Compass provides a variety of options for clients and prospective clients to take practice SATs, PSATs, ACTs, and Subject Tests 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 experiment with a demo of our interactive score reports here and read more about the powerful capabilities of the reporting platform 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. There is no charge for an initial SAT or ACT for prospective students. There is never a charge to active Compass clients.
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 typically available the same day and always within two business days.
To confirm a reservation with extended time or to discuss whether we can provide other types of accommodations, please call us at (212) 381-4421.
