## What you need to know about the TSIA2

If you are looking for TSI test prep, you are in the right place! Please, read on!

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. Beginning on January 11, 2021, a revised form of the TSI Assessment called the TSIA2 will be used.

The TSIA2 covers the same content as the previously used TSI Assessment, although some concepts are rearranged and may be referred to differently. Instead of separate Reading and Writing sections, these are combined into one section, called English Language Arts and Reading (ELAR). Evaluation in math is also combined into one test instead of being separated into several separate tests.

Important Note: Even though you will only take two actual tests, for the purpose of providing complete preparation, we have divided our materials into two sections for the ELAR test and four sections for Mathematics test. Be sure to access all of our sections as you prepare for the TSIA2.

The procedures and implications of this new test are slightly different.

• You will now take two shorter tests than before to determine college readiness, called the College Readiness Classification (CRC) tests.

• Only if you are not deemed “college-ready” by the CRC test will you move on to the Diagnostic tests.

• Instead of requiring prior “developmental” classes (for students exhibiting weakness on the test), the new procedure is to try to steer most students toward “co-requisite” supportive classes in which they can enroll while they take college-level classes in that subject.

The TSIA2, as its predecessor, is computer-adaptive—the computer chooses the next question based on your response to the previous question. Test results are available immediately after testing.

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. Non-computer forms of the test are available, but they will not be computer-adaptive, meaning they could take additional time to complete.

Exam facts

### When is it available?

Institutions vary as to when the TSIA2 Assessment is offered. Some offer it on a walk-in basis at a testing center on campus, while others require pre-registration for specific testing sessions and locations.

A Pre-Assessment Activity (PAA) is required before any TSIA2 testing occurs. This takes about 30 minutes and will be provided by your testing institution. It must include:

• Information on the test and its importance
• Practice questions and feedback on them
