Laura, 
     I'm interested in some of the "issues" you've had with COMPASS.  We decided to keep COMPASS for our reading assessment and add the diagnostic part next year to see if we get better placement results.  Is there something I should know about COMPASS (for reading)?

Hi All, I would love to hear if anyone has used COMPASS and Accuplacer
to get a comparison.  We've had a number of issues with COMPASS and I'd
like to hear about people's experiences with Accuplacer.

Thanks and Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there,

We use Accuplacer, which is similar to COMPASS, as both placement and
post-test. When we use it as a post-test, students only take the section
of the test relevant to the developmental course they finished.

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?
