Texas Success Initiative (TSIA2) Assessment

An updated Texas Success Initiative Assessment (TSIA2) was implemented by Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) on January 11, 2021. The new TSIA2 version will take place of the former TSIA exam. All students testing January 11, 2021 onward will take the new version of the TSIA exam. The Reading and Writing has been combined into one section which is now called English Language Arts Reading (ELAR). If you meet college readiness benchmarks with the previous version of the TSIA, the scores will be valid for 5 years from date the exam was taken.

Beginning Wednesday, August 28, 2013, the Texas Higher Coordinating Board requires all Texas pubic colleges and universities to administer the Texas Success Initiative Assessment (TSIA). This new exam replaces the current ACT COMPASS (TCOMP), ACCUPLACER and THEA exams. In addition, all examinees are required to take a Pre-Assessment Activity before they can take the TSIA exam.

You will need to printout the certificate at the end to present to the testing center before testing.
