Proctored Diagnostic Tests


In-person practice testing has resumed in a limited capacity at our Manhattan office (130 W 25th St  Suite 2B, New York, NY 10001). There is a $100 fee for all in-person proctored practice tests.

SAT: Saturdays at 9:00 AM, both standard and extended time.

ACT: Saturdays at 9:00 AM, both standard and extended time.

In order to register for any in person proctored practice test, you must fill out this form. We must also receive a copy of the student’s vaccination record — either the CDC card or a state-approved alternative. You can email an image to [email protected] with Subject: Vaccination Record for [Student Name] or text the image to (917) 426-7155 with the text “vaccination record for [Student Name].”

Wearing a mask is required during the administration. At all times, participants must be six feet apart from one another.


From the comfort of your own home, you can sit for practice tests monitored by a live proctor via Zoom. Online tests are offered every weekend. There is a $50 fee for all online proctored practice tests.

We offer SAT and ACT practice tests with standard time at 9 AM and 1 PM Eastern on Saturdays, and 1 PM Eastern on Sundays. We offer SAT and ACT practice tests with extended time at 12:30 PM Eastern on Saturdays.

After you register for an online exam, we will mail over a paper test booklet. We will email you a detailed confirmation including the Zoom link on the week of the exam.

More Details

Compass provides a variety of options for clients and prospective clients to take practice ACTs, SATs, PSATs, ISEEs, SSATs, and more 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.

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.
