TSI Assessment 2.0

Due to the developing COVID-19 situation, everyone entering VC buildings will be expected to wear a facial covering and participate in a basic health screening, which includes a temperature check. If you are testing on campus, be advised that our Testing Center is routinely disinfected and we are following social distancing and reduced occupancy guidelines. Testers are advised to follow all CDC, federal, state and local government regulations and guidelines. 

The VC Testing Center is now offering the TSI Assessment 2.0 remotely as well as in person at our Testing Center. View full details on our remote testing options. All students are responsible for the standard $12 TSI Assessment 2.0 fee.  Starting September 1, 2020, students using Examity are responsible for the $25 Examity proctoring fee. This additional fee is paid separately and is not associated with the Victoria College $12 TSIA2 exam fee. Scheduling for all test options is done online, as detailed below. If you have any questions about the options available to you, contact the Testing Center at (361) 582-2589 or TestingCenter@VictoriaCollege.edu.

The Texas Success Initiative Assessment 2.0 (TSIA2) is a series of placement tests for students enrolling in public colleges and universities in Texas. The tests help Texas schools determine whether you’re ready for college-level courses in English language arts and reading (ELAR) and mathematics.

If you’re not ready for college-level courses, the tests help determine what types of courses or intervention will best prepare you for college-level work. You take TSIA2 tests on a computer and will receive your results immediately after you finish the test.

Not all Texas college students have to take TSIA2. If you’ve met college readiness standards on a standardized test like the SAT or successfully completed a high school college preparatory course, you may be exempt. See details below.

Before taking the TSI Assessment 2.0, the Pre-Assessment Activity must be completed. 

A valid, current photo I.D. is required for all testing (Driver's License, Passport, Military ID, Tribal ID, or a State/National/Province ID). For the TSIA2, a school issued ID is also acceptable.  If you do not have a government issue or school ID, please complete the Accuplacer Student ID Form.
