Section 1: The Importance of Assessment

Why should I prepare?

Preparation ensures that you complete the test to the best of your ability. You can prepare by reviewing the topics and materials through the resources that are available to you.  It is also important to setup for success through healthy habits…more on that coming up!

If you do not prepare for the TSI (Texas Success Initiative) Assessment then you may receive a lower score that does not reflect your actual skills and knowledge.

A low score could mean that you are placed in one or more courses to improve your skills. Students enroll and pay for these courses although they provide no credit towards a degree or certificate.

This may add extra time and money to your planned college timeline.  In the next pages, you will see the effect of having low scores.
