A&M International Offers Free TASP Workshops July 19, 20

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 Workshops July 19 and 20.

A TASP Writing Workshop, a review for the writing section of the TASP, will be held on Wednesday, July 19 from 2 - 5 p.m. in Pellegrino Hall, room 203.

A TASP Math Workshop, a review for the math section of the TASP, will be held on Thursday, July 20 from 2 - 6 p.m. in Pellegrino Hall, room 203.

The workshops 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 workshops are sponsored by the University's Academic Enrichment Center (AEC) and are open to all A&M International students as well as to anyone in the community who needs to prepare for the TASP.

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.

A&M International will administer the TASP on July 22.

Students who need more information on the TASP workshops may contact Sandra Gray, AEC associate director, at the AEC Tutoring Center, 326-2132, or by email at ssgray@tamiu.edu.

Students who need more information on the TASP test should call the AEC Testing Center at 326-2130.

University office hours are 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Monday - Friday.
