I should clarify my response below.  We do use Compass testing for initial
placement, but in our 2 lowest level Reading classes, our Developmental
Coordinator (who is also the primary instructor for those classes) also
administers the Nelson-Denny assessment on the first day to better pinpoint
skill levels.  Any adjustments in placement can then be made at that time.
And as I state below, she uses the Nelson-Denny again as the exit level
test.  I do agree with the statement posted earlier that the same instrument
should be used for both pre and post testing.

Have a great weekend all!

Hi Lynette:

Our Developmental Coordinator is on vacation right now, so I can't offer any
information other than the fact that I believe she administers the
Nelson-Denny as an exit exam.  We also use the Compass test as our placement
instrument.

We are using the COMPASS placement test to place students in one of two
Developmental Reading Courses. We would like to administer an exit level
test at the end of each course. Any suggestions?
