What is the TSIA2?
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.
