TSI Testing

TSIA2 Assessment

What is the TSIA2 Assessment?

The TSIA2 is part of the Texas Success Initiative program designed to help colleges and universities determine if students are ready for college-level course work in the areas of reading, writing, and mathematics. Incoming college students in Texas are required to take the TSIA2 Assessments - unless they are already exempt (read below) - to determine their readiness for college-level work. Based on how a student performs, he/she may either be enrolled in a college-level course and/or be placed in the appropriate developmental course or intervention to improve his/her skills and prepare him/her for success in college-level courses.


Students wanting to take dual credit courses at MHS or students wishing to enroll in a college/university may need to take the TSIA2 assessment. Please read below for more details.

- MHS students may take the TSIA2 assessment on campus serveral times during the school year. Mrs. Shahan and/or a representative from Western Texas College may administer the assessment here. MHS’s cost is $5 per exam, and WTC’s cost is $10-15 per exam. Students may also take the exam elsewhere and bring back proof of passing.

- Next TSI assessment being offered on campus: TBA … SPRING OR SUMMER 2024

- Must take pre-assessment (for EVERYONE that has never taken the TSIA2) – – prior to taking TSIA2 assessment.

- TSI and TSIA2 results are good for five years.

To find out if you are required to take the TSIA2 assessment, contact the college/university you are interested in attending.
