Texas Success Initiative & Developmental Education

The purpose of the Texas Success Initiative (TSI) program is to guide Texas public institutions of higher education in determining whether entering, non-exempt students are ready for college-level coursework in the areas of reading, writing, and mathematics through the administration of the Texas Success Initiative Assessment (TSIA). Students that do not meet one or more of the established benchmarks of the TSIA are required to participate in a Developmental Education (DE) program. Developmental Education programs may be comprised of academic coursework, interventions and/or support services designed to prepare students for college-level coursework.
