Mark, As you can see, I've kept your message awhile and was wondering what kind of technical problems you had with COMPASS. We have had a number of problems and will probably not be continuing with it. I am just curious, I guess, as to whether the problems you had could give me some insight into the problems we've had.

We pulled the plug (literally on COMPASS) and have begun our investigation of ACCUPLACER. WE find it works well and are very pleased with the sturcture of the test items and the fact that it, like COMPASS, is untimed. Dr. Mark K.
