Retest Policy Retesting is appropriate when there is reason to believe that a score obtained from previous testing does not accurately reflect the examinee's true level of knowledge or skill. Typically, retesting is appropriate in two situations: (1) when factors other than the examinee's ability are believed to have influenced the previous testing and (2) when the scores obtained from earlier testing are no longer believed to reflect the student's current ability.
Retest timeline guidelines
Under no circumstances should a retest be given on the same day as the original test.
An examinee may sit for no more than three COMPASS/ESL tests in a 30-day period.
Students not able to test in the McNeese Testing Center may test in an approved Compass 5.0 testing center.
To request a Compass remote testing session, email firstname.lastname@example.org with your McNeese ID number, the approved testing center name and location, and the date you want to take the test. You will recieve an email the next business day with your remote testing code and any special instructions.
Students are responsible for any remote site testing fees. Scores generated at another institution will not be accepted without completing the remote testing request process.
Students are allowed to use a calculator on the ACT Compass at McNeese State University. Calculators are not provided and must comply with the Calculator Guidelines established by ACT Compass.
