Texas Tech University, Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center and Angelo State University

Description:
This session will show how the Texas Success Initiative (TSI) at Texas Tech University uses multiple measures to assess student College Readiness and place students into developmental education as required by Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board Rule 51.3062. These measures include scores from the ACT, SAT, and TAKS as well as non-cognitive factors derived from the LASSI and a personal interview. The presenter will discuss how the flagship implementation of using multiple measures affected TSI staff's ability to place students into a tailored developmental sequence along with credit-bearing coursework and the potential impact this assessment will have on postsecondary persistence.
