1.  Does your institution have mandatory placement for reading?
We use COMPASS and currently have mandatory placement for English that includes reading.  Starting in Spring 2005, we will have mandatory reading placement for all History courses and the Intro to Psychology course.

2.  What assessment do you use for reading placement?  Do you do a
follow-up assessment to ensure proper placement?
We use COMPASS reading - no follow-up

3.  Do you  require a certain reading placement score as a prerequisite for
any core curriculum courses?  
See #1 above and we will most likely proceed with further course next year.
