TSI Assessment

The Texas Success Initiative Assessment 2.0 (TSIA2) is a series of placement tests for students enrolling in public colleges and universities in Texas. The tests help Texas schools determine whether you’re ready for college-level courses in the areas of reading, writing, and math.


If you’re not ready for college-level courses, the tests help determine what types of courses or intervention will best prepare you for college-level work. You take TSIA2 tests on a computer and, depending on school policy, may get your results immediately after you finish the test.


Not all Texas college students have to take TSIA2. If you’ve met college readiness standards on a standardized test like the SAT or successfully completed a high school college preparatory course, you may be exempt. Contact the college you’ll be attending to see if you need to take TSIA2.


Before you take TSIA, you’ll need to complete a preassessment activity. The institution or school district where you test will provide the activity and document your participation.


The Texas Success Initiative Assessment 2.0 (TSIA2) is an untimed computerized test to be taken in two sections: 
(Full testing can take up to 4-5 hours)

  • Mathematics
  • English Language Arts and Reading (ELAR)

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.
