What is the TSI Assessment?
Beginning August 26, 2013 all new degree seeking students will be required to take the new Texas Success Initiative (TSI) Assessment. The purpose of the new examination is to assess a student’s academic ability in order to correctly identify the correct course sequence for new students. The TSI Assessment will determine your entry level for the subjects of reading, writing, and math.
The new TSI assessment is better aligned to what is being taught in schools currently and helps to establish statewide guidelines for advising students into college level classes and allows colleges and universities to better tailor advising to individual student needs.
