TSIA2 Assessment

What is the TSIA2 Assessment?

The TSIA2 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 TSIA2 Assessments - 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 TSIA2 assessment. Please read below for more details.

- MHS students may take the TSIA2 assessment on campus serveral times during the school year. Mrs. Shahan and/or a representative from Western Texas College may administer the assessment here. MHS’s cost is $5 per exam, and 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: June 23, 2021 @ 1 p.m.

- Must take WTC pre-assessment (for EVERYONE that has never taken the TSIA2) – https://www.tsipreview.com/welcome/Western-Texas-College – prior to taking TSIA2 assessment.

- TSI and TSIA2 results are good for five years.

To find out if you are required to take the TSIA2 assessment, contact the college/university you are interested in attending.
