We use Compass at our rural sites where we have University faculty or 
staff and where students have internet access.  In addition we use the 
paper and pencil ASSET test for students in village locations.  For 
these students we send the test to a public school official who 
proctors the test for us.  We also administer the test when we travel 
to villages for classes, workshops, or marketing.  Most of these 
villages do not have road access.
