The state of Texas requires each student to be assessed prior to taking a college course. The current state assessment is the TSI- Texas Success Initiative
The TSI has 3 assessments: Math, Reading, and Writing
The score range on the TSI is 310-390. The state has determined college readiness scores at 350 for Math, 351 for Reading, and 340-4 or 5 for the Writing.
The Smart Start Center offers free practice TSI assessments that will gauge where a student's strengths are and where a review is necessary.
In addition to the practice assessments, Smart Start offers individualized reviews tailored for each student. The review sessions are typically 1 hour to 1 1/2 hour long. The number of sessions is completely up to the amount of skill necessary to review.
Not sure how long to review? Our instructors will let YOU know when it time to test! We strive to build confidence, strategies, and skill to ensure students are ready for the TSI and any college courses that may follow.
