Math Placement Preparation


The City Colleges of Chicago use the COMPASS test to determine placement in English and Math courses.  COMPASS is an ACT test that measures your math, reading, and writing abilities.  An appropriate score on the COMPASS exam is a pre-requisite for math, English, and numerous other college credit courses.

It is important that this test is taken seriously.  Lower scores may result in 1 to 4 additional semesters of developmental coursework that do not count toward your degree. 

In order to be prepared for the math portion of the COMPASS test, students are encouraged to practice in an online environment using My Math Test.
