College prep testing

Betty Morrow, school coordinator for the Methodist Children’s Home School on the Waco campus, is busy helping many seniors prepare for college entrance exams.  This year the state is implementing the Texas Success Initiative (TSI).  This test is used by two year colleges and technical schools.

“The TSI gives the student immediate results and is a great way for the student to become familiar and knowledgeable about pre-college testing,” said Morrow. “The students were able to use our school’s library computers to take the pre-test online.  We had 18 seniors sign up for the first day it was offered.  The test measures reading, math, sentence skills, and essay writing to determine college-readiness.”

Good luck seniors!
