College and Career Readiness

College Readiness is an assessment solution that covers four content areas at the high school level—English, Math, Reading, and Science. College Readiness assessments are correlated to the American College Test (ACT) and also use the ACT test question style, letting teachers identify and address content areas and reasoning skills in which students may need further instruction. Teachers will use Test Builder to create College Readiness assessments. As with other assessments in Test Builder, a learning path is automatically generated for each student based on the student’s objective‐based test results.

Content Areas

Teachers will build a College Readiness assessment with Test Builder in one of the following content areas: 

  • English (EN) 
  • Math (MA) 
  • Reading (RE) 
  • Science (SC) 

Test Items

Test items are aligned and delivered by objective in Test Builder. Teachers will create assessments with the College Readiness standard set and assign the objective‐based test and learning path to students. Compass Learning has developed each College Readiness assessment as a single test and strongly recommends that you use all of the objectives in a given assessment. 


Based on the student’s score on the objective‐based test, Compass Learning will automatically create a learning path that includes activities from multiple courses, requiring students to achieve proficiency in these high school courses. Your site must be licensed for these required courses.
