TSIA (Texas Success Initiative Assessment)
The TSI is another exam to determine college readiness and is usually administered directly on college or university campuses. Frisco ISD does not currently administer the TSIA on any of our campuses. Dual credit students are required to either take the TSIA or meet the waiver requirements for the TSIA through other testing options. Students interested in taking the TSIA should contact the college directly where they are applying. Due to COVID 19, the TSIA is currently not being administered but it is anticipated that there will be testing options opening up soon.
Free Personalized Online Exam Preparation
The College Board and Khan Academy have partnered to provide students with free, personalized SAT test preparation. All Frisco ISD 10th and 11th grade students took the PSAT in October and all 11th graders took the SAT in March. Students can link their scores to the Khan Academy site and receive a personalized pathway to learn content and skills. Students who have not yet taken a PSAT or SAT can complete diagnostic tests online and also receive a personalized learning pathway. Research indicates that students who spend 20 hours studying on Khan Academy earn a 115 point average increase on their SAT. All of the resources are free. For more information on how to enroll, please see the website or follow these directions.
The ACT organization also provides free online ACT preparation through the ACT Academy. For more information, please visit the website.
While most colleges and universities require a college entrance exam such as the SAT or ACT, some universities are going “testing optional” and not requiring them as part of the admissions process. Please review the website for any college or university that you are interested in to learn about their specific admissions requirements.
