TSI Pre-Assessment Activity

The TSI Pre-Assessment Activity is required of all students taking the TSI Assessment at the University of Texas at Austin. The first question on the TSI Assessment will ask if you were provided with a Pre-Assessment Activity. If you do not complete the Pre-Assessment Activity and answer this first question “no”, you will not be allowed to take the TSI Assessment. You must complete the TSI Pre-Assessment Activity and answer “yes” to the first question in order to take the TSI Assessment.

If you have not yet communicated with the TSI office, please do so before proceeding with the Pre-Assessment Activity. Contacting the TSI office will allow the TSI advisor to make a final evaluation of your TSI status and whether you need to take the TSI Assessment. Our office can be reached at tsi@austin.utexas.edu or (512) 232-7146. Please note that our office only serves incoming and current students at the University of Texas at Austin.

The TSI Pre-Assessment Activity includes the following:

  • An explanation of the importance of the TSI Assessment
  • Practice test questions and feedback
  • An explanation of your developmental education options if you don’t meet the minimum passing standard
  • Information on campus and community resources that will help you succeed as a college student

Once you have completed the TSI Pre-Assessment Activity, you will have the ability to fill in, save, and print a Certificate of Completion. Please make sure to save and print your Certificate of Completion as you will need to present this to Student Testing Services on the day of your test. After obtaining your certificate, remember to click on the final “Next” button at the bottom of the page to ensure your full participation in the Pre-Assessment Activity has been saved.
