Placement & College Readiness Tests

Effective 2013 August 26:

All testing for the Texas Success Initiative (TSI) college readiness requirements must use the new College Board TSI Assessment test.

taking the TSI Assessment, all examinees must complete a Pre-Assessment Activity (PAA). When the PAA is complete, you will receive a confirmation email. You must present that email (printed or saved to your portable device) at TREC prior to payment and again when checking in at the TREC testing lab (along with valid photo ID) in order to take the TSI Assessment.
Compass, Asset, THEA, and Accuplacer tests taken on or after 2013 August 26 will not satisfy the TSI requirement. TREC no longer offers the Compass test. We will continue to offer THEA for examinees who need it for different purposes, and can offer the Accuplacer for examinees attending schools outside of Texas, or for purposes other than satisfying TSI requirements.
