The Numerical Skills/Prealgebra Placement Test includes items from more than a dozen content areas; however, a majority of the questions come from the following categories: 1. Operations with Integers 2. Operations with Fractions 3. Operations with Decimals 4. Positive Integer Exponents, Square Roots, and Scientific Notation 5. Ratios and Proportions 6. Percentages 7. Averages (Means, Medians, and Modes) The COMPASS Mathematics Tests are organized around five principal content domains: numerical skills/prealgebra, algebra, college algebra, geometry, and trigonometry. To ensure variety in the content and complexity of items within each domain, COMPASS includes mathematics items of three general levels of cognitive complexity: basic skills, application, and analysis. A basic skills item can be solved by performing a sequence of basic operations. An application item involves applying sequences of basic operations to novel settings or in complex ways. An analysis item requires students to demonstrate a conceptual understanding of the principles and relationships relevant to particular mathematical operations. Items in each of the content domains sample extensively from these three cognitive levels. Students are permitted to use calculators on all current Windows® and Internet versions of COMPASS Mathematics Tests. Calculators must, however, meet ACT's specifications, which are the same for COMPASS and the ACT Assessment. These specifications are updated periodically and can be found at ACT's website at http://www.act.org/aap/taking/calculator.html
