All dual credit students are required to take the TSI Assessment.  The TSI Assessment is a program designed to help determine college-level coursework readiness in the general areas of reading, writing and mathematics. The TSI Assessment program also will help determine what type of course(s) or intervention will best meet the student's needs to become better prepared for college-level coursework if they are not ready.


Dual Credit Requirements 351 - Reading

                                          350 - Math

Testing Services offers the TSI Assessment during scheduled administrations. The Counselor will announce when we will be giving the TSI tests.

There are three parts of the test that Goliad ISD students need to take.  They need to take the Reading, Writing and Math.  Each section is 5$ for a total of 15$ for all three.

NOTE: Students taking the TSI Assessment must complete the Pre-Assessment Activity prior to taking the exam.

Students needing to take the TSI Assessment should follow these steps:

  1. Complete the TSI Pre-Assessment Activity 
  2. Arrive at your appointment or test administration on time. Examinees that arrive late may not be allowed to test.
  3. Bring a valid form of identification (e.g., current driver’s license, military ID, passport, state-issued ID card). Examinees who do not present a valid photo ID will not be allowed to test.


Things to Know Before Taking the TSI Assessment


All incoming freshman attending a public higher education institution in Texas are required to satisfy Texas Success Initiative (TSI) requirements, unless exempted. 

The TSI Assessment is a computer-based exam that is response adaptive (the next question is determined by how the previous question was answered).

Test scores are available upon completing the test and should be interpreted by an academic advisor.

Cell phones (and other electronic communication devices) are not permitted in the testing room. 

Examinees should leave cell phones at home or in a vehicle. An examinee using a cell phone or possessing a cell phone that rings during the test session will be dismissed, and the scores may be voided.
