•  Coastal Bend College - TSI Assessment Testing Schedules

    TSI Assessment is the college placement exam that the state of Texas uses. The TSI Assessment 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 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.]
