TSI Assessment

Many students who will be attending college next year need to have their skills in Reading, Writing, and Mathematics assessed prior to enrolling in college-level coursework. Most colleges use the TSI Assessment (TSIA) to determine the proper placement in coursework based on the student’s skills in the respected area. 

The TSI ASSESSMENT is an untimed computerized test to be taken in three sections: 
(Full testing can take up to 4-5 hours)

  • Mathematics
  • Reading
  • Writing

Where necessary, you may be given an additional diagnostic test on a particular subject. This test is designed to provide more detailed information regarding your academic strengths and weaknesses. This will allow advisors to place the student in the proper coursework to enable the student to be successful in their academic pursuits.
