Coastal Bend College - TSIA (College Placement Exam) Testing SchedulesTSIA is the college placement exam that the state of Texas uses. The TSIA covers Writing, Reading, and Mathematics. The scores reflect whether a person is ready for college-level courses or if they need some preparation classes to get them ready for college-level courses.
It is mandatory for all first-time examinees
to complete a “Pre-Assessment Activity” which consists of the following:(1) the importance of this assessment, [Based upon your scores on the TSIA – 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 TSIA exam is very important and we want you to do as well
as you possibly can.]
