COMPASS/ESL is ACT’s computer-delivered, adaptive, placement and diagnostic assessment system for measuring reading, writing, and mathematics skills of new students. New services for ESL students are also being added to the new COMPASS/ESL system released every fall.   The ASSET and COMPASS systems together serve over 1,400,000 new community and technical college students each year, assisting colleges through the delivery of extensive course placement, advising support, and research services (descriptive, retention analyses, placement, cut-score evaluation, and new underprepared student follow-up services). Outcomes assessment and reporting services are also available to assist institutions with state and national reporting and accreditation information.  WorkKeys is a national system developed by ACT to assess and teach workplace skills in schools and colleges, training programs, and businesses. WorkKeys measures skills, relates them to specific job profiles, and helps individuals acquire the skills needed for their desired job. This performance-based system is designed to improve the workplace skills of the nation and to help individuals equate learning with earning. Founded in 1959, ACT is an independent, nonprofit organization focused on the gathering and delivery of information to assist individuals and institutions to facilitate academic and workplace skills instruction.
