Testing and Assessment

Testing Services provide students with the opportunity to: achieve a high school equivalency diploma (GED), meet admission requirements of four-year colleges and universities (ACT, SAT), meet placement and registration requirements of two-year public colleges (ACCUPLACER, COMPASS, THEA QT), and meet admission requirements for allied-health programs (HOBET, TEAS).

ACCUPLACER/COMPASS
The ACCUPLACER and COMPASS are computer-based placement tests which assess a student's readiness for college coursework in reading, writing, and mathematics.

ACT/SAT
The ACT and SAT Tests assess high school students' general educational development and their ability to complete college-level work. The ACT and SAT Tests are national college admission and placement examinations.

GED
The Tests of General educational Development
The GED measures major academic skills and knowledge in core content areas (language arts writing, language arts reading, mathematics, science, and social studies) that are learned during four years of high school.

HOBET
Health Occupations Basic Entrance Test
The HOBET is an assessment for a variety of health care occupations that tests basic academic knowledge in reading, mathematics, science, and English language usage.

TEAS

The TEAS is an assessment for nursing program applicants that tests basic academic knowledge in reading, mathematics, science, and English language usage.

THEA QUICK TEST
Texas Higher Education Assessment
