Below you will find the scoring requirements as well as a link to the College Board interpretation of scoring. This is a great document for understanding expectations.
COLLEGE READINESS BENCHMARKS
Mathematics: a score in the range of 350–390 in the multiple-choice section.
Reading: a score in the range of 351–390 in the multiple choice section.
Writing: Writing: two ways—(1) a score of 340–390 in the multiple- and a score of 4 on the essay, OR (2) a score of 310–339 in the multiple-choice section, and a score of 4, 5, or 6 on the ABE Diagnostic section, and an essay score of 5 (you must meet all three).
Here’s a link to understanding the scoring process.
WHAT IF I DON’T MEET THE COLLEGE READINESS CUT SCORE? If your TSI mathematics, reading, or writing test score is lower than the college readiness cut score for that subject, you may be placed in either a developmental course or an intervention to improve your skills and prepare for success in college-level courses.
WOHS students must have qualifying scores on the reading and writing portion to qualify for Dual Credit classes. The lack of a qualifying score is not a testament of a students knowledge, but, better yet, an inclination that a student may not be ready for college classes. THAT IS OKAY! This is only high school. Just like not all students are ready for AP and Pre-AP classes, not all students are ready for college classes. Students can retake the TSI in the Spring of the next year and qualify for Dual Credit classes their Senior year.
Please note that students may take the TSI at Kilgore College at any time. Here is a link to the testing center TESTING CENTER – LONGVIEW
WOHS has had great success with our students earning 12 or more college credit hours prior to high school graduation. We look forward to another great year of Dual Credit classes!
