Texas Success Initiative
Texas Success Initiative (TSI)
The TASP test was renamed the Texas Higher Education Assessment, or THEA. The TASP law has been repealed and replaced by a new program called the Texas Success Initiative (TSI). TSI requires students to be assessed in reading, writing, and math skills prior to college enrollment. Each higher education institution may determine what course of action is necessary for the student based on the assessment results.

What tests can we use for the Texas Success Initiative (TSI)?
You can use the same tests that you used for TASP purposes: the ACCUPLACER; the COMPASS; and the THEA (formerly known as the TASP Test). Here at UTB/TSC we administer the COMPASS e-Write.
If you are a new student here at UTB/TSC, you can call or come by Tandy Hall 216 for an up to date schedule of COMPASS e-Write testing dates. If you believe you are exempt from testing, please make sure to check on our TSI Exemptions page.
