TSIA Information & Sign Up

TSIA 2.0 Texas Success initiative assessment

What is the TSIA?

The TSI Assessment (TSIA) 2 is part of the Texas Success Initiative program designed to help determine if you are ready for college-level coursework in the general areas of reading, writing, and mathematics. At Rapoport, we focus on getting all of our students college-ready. Students will take the ELAR (reading & writing) test as early as 8th grade and the math test after completing Algebra I.
