TSI Test

The Texas Success Initiative is usually just called the TSI Test. The purpose of the TSI Test is to help your college determine if you are ready for college-level classes in math, reading, writing. If you are not fully prepared, then the test is designed to help determine what type of developmental classes or intervention may be needed to get you fully prepared to succeed.

All incoming college students in Texas must take the TSI Assessment, unless they qualify for an exemption. The most common exemption is given for meeting minimum standards on the ACT, SAT, or statewide high school tests. There is also an exemption for current and former members of the military.

The three components of the TSI Test are Math, Reading, and Writing. Each section consists of multiple choice questions, but the Writing section also includes an essay question. The test is computer adaptive, which means that it presents questions which are more or less difficult based on your performance. There is no time limit on the test, and students are encouraged to carefully read each question before choosing their answers. Here is the test structure:

  • Mathematics Assessment: 20 Questions
  • Reading Assessment: 24 Questions
  • Writing Assessment: 20 Questions
  • Essay Section: 1 Essay Question

The TSI Test is based on the Texas high school curriculum. Some of the questions will be challenging, so you will want to do some test prep. The best way to prepare for your exam is by working through lots of TSI practice questions. You can start right here with our free TSI practice test. It is an interactive test with sample questions very similar to those on the actual TSI. Good luck on your test!
