Texas Success Initiative Assessment
TSIA Can Help High School Students Bypass College Intervention Courses
Plano ISD is excited to offer students the opportunity to take the Texas Success Initiative Assessment (TSIA). This test is designed as a way to show Texas colleges and universities that students are college ready. Additionally, students who meet designated scores are considered “TSI Met” by universities, colleges, and community-colleges and will not be required to take intervention courses when enrolling their first year.
The TSIA is for students who:
- Are interested in taking a dual credit course in the 2021-22 school year
- Seniors who have not taken the SAT or ACT
- Seniors who took the SAT or ACT and scored lower than the college-ready standards
Testing is available on all 9-12 campuses on a variety of dates this spring. Details about TSIA scores and links other resources can be found on the Plano ISD website:
