What is the TSI Assessment?
The TSI Assessment (TSIA) is part of the Texas Success Initiative program designed to help colleges and universities determine if students are ready for college-level course work in the areas of reading, writing, and mathematics. Incoming college students in Texas are required to take the TSI Assessment - unless they are already exempt (read below) - to determine their readiness for college-level work. Based on how a student performs, he/she may either be enrolled in a college-level course and/or be placed in the appropriate developmental course or intervention to improve his/her skills and prepare him/her for success in college-level courses.
Students wanting to take dual credit courses at MHS or students wishing to enroll in a college/university may need to take the TSI assessment. Please read below for more details.
- MHS students may take the TSI assessment on campus twice a year (once in the fall and once in the spring). A representative from Western Texas College will administer the assessment here. WTC’s cost is $10 per exam. Students may also take the exam elsewhere and bring back proof of passing.
- Next TSI assessment being offered on campus: TBD
- Must take WTC pre-assessment (only if you have never taken WTC’s pre-assessment) – https://www.tsipreview.com/welcome/Western-Texas-College – prior to taking TSI assessment.
- TSI results are good for five years.
