You should do this same pattern to each option:

else if (choice1 === " USERCHOICE ") {
        if (choice2 === " COMPUTERCHOICE ") {
            return "ITEM_WINNER wins"
        }
        else {
            return "ITEM_WINNER-2 wins"
        }
    }

(Replace USERCHOICE, COMPUTERCHOICE, ITEM_WINNER and ITEM_WINNER-2 to the specific values.)

For a complete answer:

var userChoice = prompt("Do you choose rock, paper or scissors?");
var computerChoice = Math.random();
if (computerChoice < 0.34) {
	computerChoice = "rock";
} else if(computerChoice <= 0.67) {
	computerChoice = "paper";
} else {
	computerChoice = "scissors";
} console.log("Computer: " + computerChoice);

var compare = function (choice1, choice2) {
    if (choice1 === choice2) {
        return "The result is a tie!";
    }
    else if (choice1 === "rock") {
        if (choice2 === "scissors") {
            return "rock wins"
        }
        else {
            return "paper wins"
        }
    }
    else if (choice1 === "paper") {
        if (choice2 === "rock") {
            return "paper wins"
        }
        else {
            return "scissors wins"
        }
    }
    else if (choice1 === "scissors") {
        if (choice2 === "paper") {
            return "scissors wins"
        }
        else {
            return "rock wins"
        }
    }
};

compare(userChoice, computerChoice);
