Preparing Texas students for success

Texas Success Initiative Assessment 2.0 (TSIA2)

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.

Am I Required to Take the TSIA2?

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.

Why do I need to take TSIA2 tests?

If you haven't yet met college readiness standards, TSIA2 tests help determine what types of courses or intervention will best prepare you for college-level work. TSIA2 tests are computerized and, depending on school policy, you may get results immediately after you finish the test.

What if I haven't yet met college readiness standards?

A Preassessment Activity (PAA) and TSIA2 testing are required. You'll need to complete the PAA prior to TSIA2 testing.
