College Readiness Testing Calendars

  • TSI Testing Dates
  • ACT and SAT Testing Dates
  • The T-STEM program of study is waived from TSI standards so the assessment strategy will vary per student. Staff will meet with students individually to identify TSI needs and determine if students are exempt from the TSI. Students who need to meet TSI standards will receive instructions and support to prepare for the exam using free resources. Duncanville High School is a TSI testing site and provides students with several testing opportunities each semester.
