Compass will administer a ONLINE proctored ACT and/or SAT diagnostic test for Cardinal Newman students in the 11th grade. The test results are invaluable in helping students craft their ideal testing and tutoring plan.

We also have recorded proctor videos as an alternate option for students with unstable internet connection as well as our Online Testing Center for students that may have a conflict for this test date.

Please reach out to [email protected] with any questions or concerns.


SAT: Saturday, January 29th, 9:00AM PST

registration deadline: Wednesday, January 26th

ACT: Saturday, February 5th, 9:00 AM PST

registration deadline: Wednesday, February 2nd


This exam will be proctored ONLINE.

Regular-time and 50% extended-time will both be offered through separate sessions at the same date and time.

Students will be monitored by a live proctor through a group Zoom session. Students should sign in through a link provided the week of their exam about 10-15 minutes before the test start time. The proctor will give out instructions, take attendance, announce timing, and handle any issues that may arise during the exam.
