Remote Testing

With the ACT Compass Internet National Remote Testing Network, you can quickly and conveniently arrange to have your ACT Compass placement or diagnostic tests administered in over 550 supervised ACT Compass testing centers across the country.

Fast and Easy Testing of Distance Students

The ACT Compass remote testing network is quick and convenient.

  • When a student needing remote testing calls your institution, simply use the student's ZIP code to locate the nearest ACT Compass test site, and then register the student from within the ACT Compass Internet Version software.
  • A confirming email message is automatically sent to the student with information on how and where to take the test.
  • Students pay a proctor fee (typically $20–$45) to the remote test site, and the ACT Compass units used are charged to your institution's account. There are no other costs or charges for using the ACT Compass Internet National Remote Testing Network.
