DIAGNOSTIC TESTS & COMPASS PLACEMENT TEST
Diagnostic Testing will identify the level of learning support provided to the student. The Reading Diagnostic Test will be administered during Destination TSU for all participating students who have this requirement. Students who are required to take the Math Diagnostic Test and/or the Writing Diagnostic Test will complete tests during the first week of classes.
ACT/SAT or COMPASS scores are used to determine if first-time freshmen will require Diagnostic Testing:
- The Math Diagnostic Test is required for ACT Math score of 18 or less, SAT Math score less than 460, or COMPASS Algebra score of 37 or less.
- The Reading Diagnostic Test is required for ACT Reading score of 18 or less, SAT Reading score less than 460, or COMPASS Reading score of 82 or less.
- The Writing Diagnostic Test is required for ACT English score of 17 or less, SAT Writing score less than 450, or COMPASS Writing score of 76 or less.
For more information, please contact the Advisement Center at (615) 963-5531.
COMPASS Placement Test
First-time freshmen over age 21 without valid ACT/SAT scores (no more than three years old) must complete the COMPASS placement test. Students who were over 21 when admitted to TSU should schedule an appointment with the Testing Center to take the COMPASS placement test prior to attending Destination TSU.
