Pre-Assessment Activity

Support for 750,000 Texas Students

Beginning in 2015, Querium had a six-year contract with the State of Texas to prepare students for the Texas Success Initiative Assessment (TSIA), a required placement test in math, reading, and writing. Querium created a standardized TSIA Pre-Assessment Activity (PAA) website. More than 750 educational institutions across Texas used Querium’s web-based PAA solution to help their student success on the TSIA.

THECB approved! Querium’s PAA Online is funded by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) and meets all requirements of TSI Rule §4.55(b)

Querium’s solution for the TSIA was designed for today’s students and was easy to implement for campuses across Texas.


Students can complete the required PAA anytime, anywhere – even in the hallway outside the testing center!


Students experience video-based explanations on the importance of the TSI, sample practice items across all of the subjects, customized campus resource information, and more.
