Important Information About This Test:
Beginning on January 11, 2021, this test will be called the TSIA2. The test section organization and the testing order will be slightly different, but the tested content in reading, writing, and math will be exactly the same as before. You should contact your testing institution for more information about new testing procedures, but you can feel confident using our current study materials to prepare for the test. We are actively working on reorganizing our materials and updating our information to match the new version of this test. Official information about the new test was not available until late November 2020 as the revision process was delayed due to COVID. As soon as our new materials are ready, you will need to select TSIA2 from our list of tests. At that point, we will remove materials labeled TSI.
The TSI Assessment was created by the College Board® in response to college success improvement efforts mandated by the Texas legislature. It is given to prospective college students in Texas and measures their level of preparedness for college-level study. A placement test is given in each of three areas: reading, writing, and math. If a student earns a pre-established “passing” score on the placement tests, he or she is cleared to enroll in any college-level classes at that institution. However, if the passing or “cut” score is not achieved in any area, shorter diagnostic tests will be administered to identify specific learning needs. A student may not have to take the diagnostic part if the score is high enough on the placement test. The diagnostic test(s) will be used to help the student plan enrollment, including remediation courses in subjects of demonstrated need.
The TSI Assessment is computer-adaptive—the computer chooses the next question based on your response to the previous question. Test results are available immediately after testing and, usually, class enrollment will begin at that time.
Modifications are available for students with disabilities, but you need to contact the disabilities office at the college or university to apply for these before testing. This process involves a review of your situation according to institution and federal regulations, so allow plenty of time before you need to take the test.
