Requests for testing appointments must be made no later than 12:00 noon the day before your requested test date. Two hour time test must be scheduled by 6:00 p.m. in order to allow sufficient testing time. Advance planning is necessary as some test times fill quickly and remaining times may not meet a student’s individual scheduling needs.

- Test proctors are not authorized to alter the instructions provided by the instructor to interpret test contents for students.

The Texas Success Initiative (TSI) is a state-mandated program that applies to all students enrolling in Texas public colleges and universities for the first-time. Students are required to take the TSI assessment, if they are not exempt to demonstrate college readiness. The exemptions include: 1) achieving at or above the state exemption scores on ACT, SAT, TAKS, or STARR End of Course (EOC), 2) earned an associate or baccalaureate degree, or 3) completed college-level coursework at a private or independent institution of higher education or an accredited out-of-state institution of higher education.
The TSI Assessment is an instructional program designed to enhance the success of students in college-level courses. The program promotes the early diagnosis of basic skills in reading, mathematics (algebra & statistics), and writing, and mandates programs to ensure the success of students in higher education.
Based on how you perform you may either be enrolled in a college-level course that matches your skill level or be placed in the appropriate developmental course or intervention to improve your skills and prepare you for success in college-level courses.
Before you take the TSI Assessment, you must participate in a Pre-Assessment Activity unless you meet one of the approved exemptions. Angelina College provides the Pre-Assessment Activity and documents your participation. The activity includes the following:
- A description of the approved exemptions;
- An explanation of the importance of the TSI Assessment;
- Practice test questions and feedback;
- An explanation of all your developmental education options, if you don’t meet the minimum passing standard; and
- Information on campus and community resources that will help you succeed as a college student.
