and
alter table <table name> move partition compress ?

when used with no other options, as you have shown, the two should be identical in functionality.

the reason the two statements exist is that each "can" do other things.

for example:
"modify" can change the inmemory or logging settings
"move" is used to move a partition to a new tablespace.

if you don't do anything other than compress, then either statement will do the same thing.

no points for me:
both will invalidate global indexes ( unless you also specify to rebuild them), and require the space for the uncompressed and the compressed blocks.
