Texas Success Initiative (TSI) Assessment
The TSI Assessment measures student strengths and weaknesses in mathematics, reading, and writing. It is an indicator of how ready a student is to handle college-level courses (college readiness). Brownsville ISD tests eighth grade students in reading only and high school students in all three areas (math, reading, and writing).
MANDATORY PRE-ASSESSMENT ACTIVITY (PAA)
A PAA is required before a student can take the TSIA. The pre assessment activity includes the following:
- An explanation of the importance of the TSI Assessment.
- Practice test questions and feedback.
- An explanation of all the developmental education options, if the minimum passing standard is not met.
- Information on resources that will assist towards college success.
