Once a student completes the admissions process, many will be required to take a Placement Test. Ogeechee Technical College utilizes COMPASS, published by the American College Testing, Inc. (ACT) as its primary state approved assessment instrument for testing applicants for program readiness. If an applicant is uncomfortable with taking computerized tests, or in certain other situations, Ogeechee Technical College offers ASSET, another state approved instrument published by ACT.
COMPASS consists of a series of four tests: Writing, Reading, Mathematics and Algebra. This test is an un-timed, multiple choice test given by computer. Algebra tests are required only for Associate Degrees, and certain other programs of study.
COMPASS sample questions can be found on-line at www.act.org/compass.
ASSET consists of a series of four tests: Writing, Reading, Numerical Skills and Elementary Algebra. This is a paper and pencil, multiple choice tests, with each section timed at 25 minutes. Elementary Algebra tests are required for Associate Degrees and certain other programs of study. All other programs require a Numerical Skills score.
