Pre-assessment Activity Module

The Pre-assessment Activity Module (PAM) is a state mandated, online pre-assessment required of all students who need to complete the TSI Assessment. The PAM is an online practice exercise which gives students prior exposure to the types of questions that will be presented on the actual TSI Assessment. The PAM also will assist the students in identifying any academic weaknesses in the three areas of Math, reading and writing prior to attempting the actual exam. The PAM must be completed before attempting the TSI Assessment regardless of the option selected. The PAM does not need to be proctored or supervised and can be completed on any internet enabled computer. Navigate to /Testing/PAM for instructions on how to complete the online PAM.
