Placement Testing

All incoming PC students are placed in the appropriate level of math and/or English courses by ACT or SAT scores. If a student wishes to challenge the ACT/SAT placement he or she may take the COMPASS placement test.   Presentation College offers the COMPASS test, one time, at no charge to incoming PC students.

Students requesting to take the COMPASS test for another college may do so by scheduling an appointment with the Career and Learning Center.

Proctoring Services

Students are responsible for making an appointment in the Career and Learning Center by e-mailing Deb Schuelke or Denae Clobes. Proctoring hours are available 8:00am-5:00pm Monday-Friday.  Students must report to the CLC at the time scheduled to take their test.

Online Courses

The instructor will provide the test information to the CLC, including the dates the test is available, length of the test, and if any materials are allowed.  The CLC will not proctor a test outside the test availability time unless permission is granted from the instructor.

Classroom/Make-up Tests

The CLC will administer make-up tests and proctored exams for students who are unable to take a scheduled classroom test for one of the following reasons:

  • A personal, family, work, or medical emergency
  • Missing a test due to a college sponsored academic or athletic event
  • A documented disability identified by the Disability Services Coordinator

Only Presentation College faculty members can authorize a make-up test.  Students must speak with their instructor before scheduling an exam in the CLC.  The instructor will provide the test information to the CLC, including the dates the test is available, length of the test, and if any materials are allowed.

Proctoring for Non-PC Students

The CLC will proctor tests for a limited number of non-PC students for a charge of $20 per test.
