We offer students and the community the convenience of testing right in our facility. Among the tests we offer are the following:

COMPASS

• COMPASS is a placement test that measures your current skill in reading, writing, and mathematics. There is no time-limit to the test, and you are welcome to retest if you feel that the scores do not reflect your ability in a given area.

• WNMU uses this test to determine placement in college-level or developmental classes. Developmental courses review material to prepare you for success in college-level courses.

• The COMPASS test is administered in our Testing Room upon request, Monday through Friday, between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. You do not need an appointment just stop in at your convenience. The COMPASS test is also offered at our Deming and Truth or Consequences campuses; please contact the WNMU campus nearest you for details.
