What is acceptable / normal oil usage?

Just wondering if anyone knows what is an acceptable or normal amount of oil to be burning in an 03 Impreza WRX, or should it not burn any oil? thanks.

Can't see any leaks, just changed the clutch and did not see any oil around the underside of the engine etc... car seems to run fine, no weird sounds, I'm going to get a compression test done, do you think this is a good idea?
