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.

Proctoring Services

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

Pencil and paper based exams must first be received by the Testing Center prior to scheduling a test date and time. The exam must be directed to:

ASUMH Testing Center
R200 Attn: Lorie McMaster
1600 S. College
Mountain Home, AR 72653

Once you have requested the exam to be sent from the originating college, university or agency to the Testing Center, please allow 3-5 business days before calling to schedule an appointment to take the exam. Arrange for the home campus or agency to include a pre-paid self-addressed return envelope otherwise student is responsible for payment of return mailing. 

Web Based (Browser) Testing

Email correspondence from another college, university or agency detailing the web based exam instructions need to be sent to lmcmaster@asumh.edu at least 24-48 hours prior to scheduling an appointment.
