English Placement Test

Incoming students at Morehead State who have an ACT subtest score in English of less than 18 are required to take the COMPASS e-Write placement test. The COMPASS e-Write test is a multiple-choice test which requires students to read one or more passages and identify the errors within. This will assess the student’s knowledge and skills in the usage and mechanics of writing such as basic grammar, punctuation and sentence structure. The test will also assess the student’s rhetorical skills, such as writing strategy, organization and style.

Morehead State University does not charge a fee for incoming students to take the COMPASS e-Write placement test. The COMPASS e-Write test is computer-based and lasts 60 minutes (Visit the ACT website for more information).
