Section 1: The Importance of Assessment

What is the TSI Assessment?

The test you will take is called the Texas Success Initiative (TSI) Assessment and it is required by State law.

This assessment is a series of questions that help predict what classes are best suited for your needs. All college students in Texas will complete this test unless they meet exemption criteria.

The purpose of the Texas Success Initiative (TSI) is to determine if you are ready for college-level work in the areas of reading, writing and math. Success in these areas can help you complete your college degree or certificate program.
