COMPASS is a computerized assessment in reading, writing, and math that is part of the ASUMH admissions and registration process. Placement testing helps to identify what classes you should schedule your first quarter. Our goal is to ensure that your classes are at the right level for you - not too easy and unchallenging and not so difficult that you would feel overwhelmed.
For more information, contact the Testing Center (870) 508-6209.
Note: COMPASS is NOT a timed test
The Price for COMPASS is $20.00 to be paid at the cashier window on the 3rd floor of Roller Hall. Bring your receipt to the testing center at the time of your test.

The ASUMH Testing Center offers proctoring services for anyone needing to take tests on the Mountain Home campus for another school or agency. Students participating in distance learning programs or correspondence degree programs and professionals needing to be tested in order to receive certification in their field may be able to arrange to have their tests proctored at our facility.
Proctoring services are available to students and non-students for free. However, if the institution you are testing from has a fee associated with that program, payment must be made prior to your exam.
