Use this 10-item pretest to test your knowledge in Reading. Record your pretest score and then study the tutorials that are provided on this site. When you feel that you are ready to take your TSI Assessment, you should schedule your test at the Testing Center.
The results of this Pretest may give you a general idea of your actual placement results. This test is for practice only and the results are not used for actual placement.
Select an answer for each item. If you do not know the answer, you should make an educated guess. After you submit the test, you will be given your results.
Be sure to check your answers.
Use the scale below to see where you might be placed when you take the actual TSI Assessment for Reading. This is not your actual TSI Assessment placement score. To get that, you must complete the TSI Assessment itself at your nearest HCC testing center.
If you got the following number of questions correct, your placement level may be:
0-4: Adult Basic Education Courses
5-7: Developmental Courses
8-10: College Level
If you feel you need more preparation prior to taking the actual TSI Assessment, you should go to the Reading Review section of the website for additional information and practice.
If not, return to the TSI Practice Tests section to complete your other required practice tests (if necessary) and complete your TSI Pre-Assessment Activity Verification Form. You will need this completed form to bring to the Enrollment Services office to sign up for the TSI Assessment.
