A&M International Offers Free TASP Workshops June 11, 13

Texas A&M International University's Academic Enrichment Center (AEC) will offer two free workshops designed to help students succeed on the TASP (Texas Academic Skills Program).

A TASP Writing Workshop, a review for the Reading and Writing sections of the TASP, will be held on Thursday, June 11 from 2 - 5 p.m. in Bullock Hall room 220.

A TASP Math Workshop, a review for the Math section of the TASP, will be held on Saturday, June 13 from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m. in Bullock Hall room 220.

The workshops will help participants become familiar with the contents of the test, the format of the test items, and the best strategies for working through the test.

The Official TASP Study Guide will be used for both workshops. The Study Guide gives detailed suggestions, examples, and explanations for all three TASP subtests.

TASP is a statewide program required by Texas law to ensure that students entering Texas public colleges and universities have the basic reading, writing, and mathematics skills needed to be successful in college-level work.

All full- or part-time students enrolled at Texas public colleges and universities and those entering any educator preparation program in Texas must take the TASP, unless qualified for TASP exemption.

Students who need more information on the TASP may contact Sandra Sanders, AEC associate director, at 326-2132 during normal business hours.

Information may also be secured by email at ssanders@tamiu.edu.

Journalists who need additional information or help with media requests and interviews should contact the Office of Public Affairs and Information Services at pais@tamiu.edu
