Texas Higher Education Assessment, logo



The Texas Higher Education Assessment Test provides information about basic reading, mathematics and writing skills.

Effective September 1, 2017, THEA iBTwill no longer be offered by the ATC. 

If you have any questions, our email is testing@tamuk.edu.

Effective  3/1/2016, for admission and basic skills, the following applies:

The THEA, Accuplacer, and others are no longer acceptable as admission or demonstration of basic skills determination.  The process of determining applicant's basic skills has been aligned with the Texas Higher Education Coordination Board requirements identified in Chapter 4 of TAC.  Many of the TSI exemptions such as identified scores on SAT or ACT exams, a conferred Bachelor's Degree and others are still acceptable demonstrations of basic skills.  The TSI assessment is the only identified assessment that is now acceptable.
