- New TSI Assessment
Beginning August 26, 2013, the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board is requiring all Texas public colleges and universities to administer the new Texas Success Initiative (TSI) Assessment. Any new student who has not enrolled in a college course at CTC or another Texas public college or university prior to 8/26/13 or met a state approved TSI exemption will be required to take the new TSI Assessment. Until this date, CTC will continue to accept the ACCUPLACER, COMPASS, THEA, and ASSET.
The TSI Assessment is a computer adaptive placement examination. It is completed entirely online and includes multiple choice questions as well as an essay. The assessment is graded automatically and a report is printed out with your specific results. In the beginning of the assessment, there will be some demographic questions asked as well as an important question: Were you provided with information and/or an activity to help you understand the following: (1) the importance of this assessment, (2) sample questions, (3) course options, and (4) resources for students? This is a Yes or No question. After completely reading through these pages, you will have all the information and activity information to be able to answer "Yes".
Please take a few minutes to read over the Pre-Assessment Activities (PAA) that are offered to you through Central Texas College (CTC). These activities are for you benefit to help ensure your success at CTC.
