COMPASS Testing

Placement Test

You can "drop-in" to the testing annex anytime it is open (see the hours listed below). You will need a K number and photo ID. You may already have one if you've earned credits from Chemeketa before. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE YOUR K NUMBER AND PHOTO ID, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO TEST! Students can take one free placement test per calendar year. All retests are $15 per time, whether for one or all three portions of the placement test. The Testing center is located in Building 6, Room 216, and the hours are:

Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday
10:00 am - 5:00 pm
(Must begin test before 3 pm, lab closes at 5:00 pm)

Tuesday
10:00 am - 8:00 pm
(Must begin test before 6 pm, lab closes at 8:00 pm)
