    Coastal Bend College – College Placement Exam 2014 Test Schedule - Beeville Campus
    (361) 354-2244 or (361) 354-2334

    The College Placement Exam – TSI Assessment - is computer adaptive and state approved.

    TSI Assessment Exam

    All first time students pursuing a degree or Level II certificate are required to take the TSI Assessment exam if they are not TSI exempt prior to registration.  This exam can be from one to seven hours long – based upon the individual.   http://www.coastalbend.edu/collegeplacement.   

    The examinee will first have a placement exam in each subject area – Reading/Writing/Math.  If they are at the college level, then they will advance to the next subject area.  If a person doessn’t place at the college level in a subject, then they will have approximately 30 to 50 additional diagnostic questions in the subject before they advance to the next subject area.

    The diagnostic results will appear on the TSI Assessment Score Report – so that the examinee is aware of their strengths and weakness in each subject area that they complete diagnostic questions over. 

    Mandatory -
    Pre-Assessment Activity

     

    All first-time college students will need to go through a Pre-Assessment Activity which consists of the following:  

    (1) the importance of this assessment, [Based upon your scores on the TSI Assessment – this will decide whether you are eligible for a college level course or if you will need to take a developmental or preparation course – which will not give you college credit.  A developmental course will help you build your skills so that you will eventually be able to take a college level course.  These courses give you a foundation in the subject area that you need preparation in.  The TSI Assessment exam is very important and we want you to do as well as you possibly can.]
    (2) sample questions, [go to: 
    http://www.coastalbend.edu/tsiresource/ for sample questions and other resources to help you prepare for the TSI Assessment]
