Pre-Assessment Activity

Center for Academic Student Achievement (CASA)

Pre-Assessment Activity (PAA)

Before you take the Texas Success Initiative (TSI) Assessment, you must participate in a mandatory Pre-Assessment Activity (PAA). Texas A&M University – Corpus Christi is required by state law to provide the PAA as well as document your participation, so it is very important that you complete this activity before taking the test. Also, you WILL NOT be allowed to take the TSI Assessment until you have completed this activity.

The activity includes the following:

  1. Read the explanation about the importance of the TSI Assessment;
  2. Practice the sample questions and feedback to help you prepare for the TSI Assessment;
  3. Read the explanation about your developmental education options if you don’t meet the minimum passing standard, and
  4. Read the information on campus and community student resources that will help you succeed as a college student.
It is important that you complete this activity because Question #1 on the TSI Assessment will begin with the following background question:

1. Pre-Assessment Activity: Were you provided with information and/or an activity to help you understand all of the following: (1) the importance of assessment, (2) sample questions, (3) course options, and (4) resources for students? Yes.

Be prepared to answer Yes; otherwise, you will not be allowed to take the assessment.
