A&M International Offers Free TASP Reviews June 14, 15

Texas A&M International University invites anyone in the community who needs to prepare for the Texas Academic Skills Program (TASP ) to attend two free TASP review sessions June 14 and 15.

A TASP Writing Review Session, a review for the writing section of the TASP, will be held on Wednesday, June 14 from 2 - 5 p.m. in Bullock Hall, room 222.

A TASP Math Review Session, a review for the math section of the TASP, will be held on Thursday, June 15 from 2 - 6 p.m. in Bullock Hall, room 222.

The review sessions will familiarize participants with the contents of the test, the format of the test items, and the best strategies for working through the TASP test.

Both free reviews are sponsored by the University's Academic Enrichment Center (AEC) and are open to anyone who needs to prepare for the TASP, as well as to all A&M International students.

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.

The TASP will be administered at A&M International on June 17. Students who need more information on the TASP may contact Sandra Gray, AEC associate director, at 326-2132.

For more information on the TASP review sessions June 14 and 15, please contact Senior Tutor Catherine Buckley at 326-2723. University office hours are 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Monday - Friday.
