Take the COMPASS at SV!

Did you know the COMPASS test is offered at Spring Valley? The COMPASS test is the Midlands Technical College placement test.  There is a math, a reading, and a writing (essay) section. To schedule your test email or see Mrs. Arling in the Testing and Tutoring Center.  The COMPASS test must be taken after you apply to MTC and before you register for classes. 

Here's what you need to know:

You need your social security number in order to take the test.

More than one section may be taken on the same day or each section may be taken on a separate day.

The test is not timed.  You should allow at least an hour per section.

Come at the scheduled time.

You will get your score report for the Math and Reading sections the same day you take them.

You will get the results from the writing section about a week after it is submitted.
