Does anyone administer COMPASS (or other online placement test) for
students at a distance?  How do you address the proctoring issue?

Thanks -

Katy,

We use Compass for the online version and Accuplacer for the paper/
pencil version.  They're both made by CollegeBoard.  Any student who
achieved at least a 500 in the Reading portion of the SAT is exempt from
the test.  Students are able to challenge the test by taking a version
of the NJ Basic Skills test before the semester begins.
