- Every individual testing on the ASUMH Campus must present at least one form of picture identification -
COMPASS (Placement Exam)
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 semester. 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. 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.
COMPASS Study Materials
Note: COMPASS is NOT a timed test and no COMPASS exam can begin after 1:00PM
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 within the Arkansas State University System for free. Non-students and students from outside institutions are required to pay a proctor fee. In addition, if the institution you are testing from has a fee associated with that program, payment must be made prior to your exam.
Pencil and Paper Based Testing
