TSI is a test for incoming degree-seeking Texas college students who are hoping to enter into a public state college in Texas. The TSI is accepted by all Texas public colleges and universities and is needed prior to enrollment in the first semester. This test helps determine how prepared a student is for college-level courses and assists in determining the appropriate level of course work for each student prior to enrollment. Students who do not perform well on a section/s of the TSI, will be required to take a remedial course in that subject area/s prior to enrollment. Others may be able to retest and aim for a better performance. A successful first performance is ideal and recommended for student as this will determine their readiness for college and reduce time and money spent on remedial coursework.
The test is composed of computer adaptive, multiple choice questions in three subject areas: math, reading, and writing, and an essay section. Levels of difficulty of each question is determined on how the previous questions have been answered. The school in which a student will be enrolling will administer the test. It is important to contact your school prior to taking the test for exact and additional information.
