What is the Texas Success Initiative (TSI) Assessment?
The TSI assessment is a computer-based test measuring skills in Reading, Sentence Skills, Essay Writing, and Mathematics. Any student who is attempting to enroll in college-level coursework at a community college who is not exempt from the testing requirements should take the TSI. Also, those students who plan on enrolling in our dual-credit program should take this test.
