As a Developmental Studies Department Chair in an urban SUNY community
college, I am researching a switch to COMPASS from the paper ASSET Tests
we are currently using for Placement Testing.

I have heard negative comments about the COMPASS Writing Test. (We do
not use Writing Samples for placement.)  In addition, I have heard that
the Math Tests are not effective in placing students.

I would appreciate your feedback, which I can keep anonymous if you
