The TSI Assessment is the standard by which Texas public post-secondary institutions (2-year, 4-year, vocational, trade, etc.) evaluate a student’s readiness for college-level course work in the areas of reading, writing, and math. If a student does not meet the TSI benchmark scores, the college will assume a student is not ready to take on college-level coursework. In turn, the college will require the student to take developmental coursework to build knowledge and skills. This required developmental coursework costs money and prevents students from jumping right into courses that will apply toward the completion of a college degree. Our goal is to enable students to avoid this coursework by helping students earn those benchmark scores on the TSI.
Incoming college and dual credit students in Texas are required to take the TSI Assessment, unless they are already exempt, to determine readiness for college-level work.
You will need to take the TSI if you are enrolling in the following:

What if I fail the test?
First of all, there is no "pass" or "fail". You either meet standard and can bypass developmental courses, or you don't meet standard and are placed into Reading, Writing, and/or Math courses that match your skill level.
