TSI Pre-Assessment

When Do I Take The Pre-Assessment Activity?
Before you take the TSIA2 Assessment, you must participate in a Pre-Assessment Activity. Northeast Texas Community College is required by state law to provide the Pre-Assessment Activity as well as document your participation, so it is very important that you complete this activity before you take the test. Also, you will not be allowed to take the TSIA2 Assessment until you have completed this activity.

The Pre-Assessment Activity includes the following:

  • Learn what's on the TSIA2 Assessment and why doing well matters.
  • Find out if you are exempt from taking the TSIA2 Assessment.
  • Try your hand (and brain!) on some sample items.
  • Get the details about testing and support for your target college.
  • Receive your certificate for completing this mandatory activity.
  • Finish in 30 minutes or less!

Be sure to print out your PAA certificate and bring it with you on the day you take the TSIA2 Assessment.
