What is TSIA2?

The TSIA2, or Texas Success Initiative Assessment 2.0, is the updated version of the original TSI Assessment. This test consists of placement assessments for students who plan to attend a Texas public university or college. The exams are administered in Mathematics and English Language Arts and Reading (ELAR), and institutions use the results to help determine whether a student is ready for study at the college level.

I passed my TSIA2 test, and honestly I tried out so many different websites; Mathhelp was by far the best and worth every penny! It was easy to follow and went over exactly what I needed to know.

I started using MathHelp because I was going to take a placement test to go back to College. The test went really well. My score on Quantitative Reasoning, Algebra, and Statistics was 274 which is very good for the Next-Gen Accuplacer test. The lady at the College said it was the best score she had seen in a while. I have nothing but to thank MathHelp for the review and the very well structured and easy to follow classes, it really helped me. I'm starting College Algebra this upcoming Spring Semester and will definitely come back to MathHelp in case I need some outside help.

My Math TSIA2 went great! I completed and passed the first 20 questions and didn’t have to finish the rest. 👍🏼 I think the lessons were great, coming from someone who hasn’t studied this material in 20 years. It was very thorough and you did a great job! Thanks again!

My TSIA2 test went great. I passed the test my first try and math is not my strongest subject so this course helped a lot. Thank you!

I did well on the TSIA2 and am thankful for your course. I found the instruction and pace to be very helpful. The amount of practice questions provided for each topic was perfect and I liked how I could pause the quizzes to review the material a little more if I felt unsure. I’m very happy to have found MathHelp and will sing its praises from here on out. Thank you so much for the help you provided!

Thank you SO MUCH! I PASSED THE TSI WITH FLYING COLORS and I wouldn't have walked in there with the confidence had it not been for your awesome program! I really feel like how you explained it made it click for me. I was able to comprehend the material and feel like that is due in large to the direct, repetitive nature of the course. It's organized very well. The fact that there's audio for every practice problem is VERY helpful. It's one thing to have a video teaching a concept, but to have you explaining the work and reinforcing the concepts as I'm practicing on my own really helped more than just having the answer given without explanation.

The TSIA2 course I took was a tremendous help. I went into the course knowing very little about math other than middle school level basics. I took math when I was in high school but I never understood what was going on and I had just barley scrapped by. This course is the first thing I've ever been able to understand on the topic of math. I feel confident to go to college now that I have a clue on what's going on. Thank you so much.

That course was the absolute reason in my success of the TSIA2 test. I did pass it and can take College level algebra instead of developmental math. Specifically speaking, the quadratic equations, functions/graphing, linear equations in two variables and expressions, equations and formulas really helped. So I'd most definitely give that course a lot of credit to helping me pass.

What is the difference between the TSI test and the new TSIA2?

The most notable difference is that the TSI test consisted of three exams (Reading, Writing, and Math), and the new TSIA2 uses only two (ELAR and Math). In the new version of the test, Reading and Writing assessments have been combined into one ELAR assessment. The TSIA2 exams are also scored differently, with a new range of college readiness benchmark levels.

What math should I review for the TSIA2?

The items to review for the TSIA2 math test fall into four main categories: Quantitative Reasoning, Algebraic Reasoning, Geometric and Spatial Reasoning, and Probabilistic and Statistical Reasoning. Within these categories, your tutoring should cover the following topics.

  • Compare rational and irrational numbers
  • Solve problems with ratio, proportion, and percent
  • Solve proportional relationship problems
  • Identify, manipulate, and interpret linear equations, inequalities, and expressions
  • Solve linear equations, inequalities, and systems of linear equations
  • Evaluate linear functions
  • Solve quadratic and exponential relationship problems
  • Identify and manipulate quadratic, polynomial, exponential, rational, and radical equations and expressions
  • Solve equations and evaluate functions (quadratic, polynomial, exponential, rational, and radical)
  • Convert units within (and between) systems of measurement
  • Find perimeter, area, surface area, and volume
  • Use transformations to investigate congruence, similarity, and symmetry
  • Apply right triangle relationships and basic trigonometry
  • Make connections between geometry and algebraic equations
  • Compute and interpret probability
  • Compute and describe measures of center and spread of data
  • Classify data and construct appropriate representations of data
  • Analyze, interpret, and draw conclusions from data

Can I retake the TSIA2 math test?

You can retake the TSIA2 at any time if you would like to improve your scores. However, it’s best to study before you take the test the first time so that you can avoid having to retake it. An online program with efficient TSIA2 math tutoring and practice is the best way to get the help you need to pass the test.

How do I know if I am exempt from taking the TSIA2 test?

Students may be exempt from taking the TSIA2 test with qualifying scores on the following exams.

  1. ACT composite score of 23 with at least 19 in Math or 19 in English
  2. SAT (after 2016) 530 Mathematics or 480 Evidenced Based Reading and Writing
  3. SAT (before 2016) composite score 1070 and 500 Math or 500 Verbal
  4. STAAR scores in English II and Algebra II may be used but the scores are still to be determined so check with the Admissions Office at your college
  5. PSAT/NMSQT (taken after 10/2015) 510 Math or 460 English
  6. PSAT/NMSQT (taken before 10/2015) composite score of 107 and 50 Math or 50 English
  7. You may also be exempt if you are a veteran or if you are enrolling in certificate level programs. Contact the Admissions Office at your college to be certain.

If you do not meet any of the criteria above, you’ll need to prepare thoroughly for the test. A study guide that features diagnostic quizzes, comprehensive lessons, guided review, and a TSIA2 practice test may be just what you need to hone your skills.

How do I find a tutor for the TSIA2?

Your college may be able to recommend a tutor. However, much more affordable options for TSIA2 test prep are available online.
