TSIA2 at Frenship High School

Frenship High School offers the TSIA2 (Texas Success Initiative Assessment) to satisfy requirements set by post-secondary institutions to current FHS students.
 
**IMPORTANT NOTE -  It is recommended to prepare and take a practice exam prior to testing. Click on the Accuplacer Practice Application College Board link on the bottom of this page for study resources.
**The student ID required to access your scores is either your Social Security number or the unique ID # assigned to you by Skyward (not your FHS ID #).  You can ask Ms. Pharr or Ms. Morris for this number.

The Texas Success Initiative Assessment (TSIA2) test is designed to help determine if students are ready for college-level coursework in general areas of reading, writing, and mathematics. Incoming college students in Texas are required to take the TSI unless they are exempt through strong ACT or SAT scores.
