Testing Information 
Go to Texas Assessment and if you do not know your child's 'Unique Student Access Code' you can select 'Find My Unique Student Access Code'. Enter the information TEA asks that is unique to your child, select 'Go' and the system will provide you the code. You will also receive the code on your child's STAAR Report Card. Those will be mailed out as soon as the state provides them to us (shortly after results come in).
The ACT and the SAT are college admissions tests required by most colleges. Most college admissions committees will evaluate your application based on your best single-session score, so don’t hesitate to send scores from multiple test days. For those of you who don’t test well, you’ll be glad to know that there are colleges that are test-optional – you may still need to take an ACT or SAT, but the score is not the critical piece of your application.

 San Saba High School is a TSI testing location


The TSI is Texas' College Readiness Exam. Any student planning to attend a PUBLIC college in Texas (either 2-year, like ACC and Blinn, or 4-year, like Texas State or ASU) must complete the TSI exam before enrolling. Scores on this exam do not determine college admission (that's what the SAT and ACT are used for); rather, the TSI is used to determine which classes a student can enroll in. All seniors are encouraged to complete the TSI, unless they qualify for the TSI exemptions. Underclassmen planning to take dual-credit courses also need to complete the TSI.


TSI Scores:


Students will receive their scores immediately upon the completion of testing. Below are the score requirements for college/dual-credit enrollment:


  • Math: 350
  • Reading: 351
  • Writing: 363 on multiple choice with a 4 on the essay OR any score on multiple choice with a 5 on the essay.



TSI Exemptions:


Students may be considered exempt from the TSI/College Ready if they meet any of the following criteria:


  • SAT Math score of 530+ = exempt in TSI Math
  • SAT Evidenced Based Reading and Writing score of 480+ = exempt in TSI Reading and Writing
  • ACT Composite score of 23 with a 19+ in Math = exempt in TSI Math
  • ACT Composite score of 23 with a 19+ in English = exempt in TSI Reading & Writing
How do I sign up to take the TSI:
TSI tests are generally given after school or on Saturdays. See the high school counselor on available dates. San Saba High School does charge for the cost of the the test. $20 for all three tests (reading, math and writing) or $10 per exam if only taking one or two. Students must participate in PAA prior to taking the TSI. (link below)
