Coordinating Board Academic Approval Number 2313015112 Required textbook ---- ―Writing Today‖ by Richard Johnson-Sheehan & Charles Paine The Texas Success Initiative (TSI) is a statewide program designed to ensure that students enrolled in Texas public colleges and universities have the basic academic skills needed to be successful in college-level course work. The TSI requires assessment, remediation (if necessary), and advising of students who attend a public college or university in the state of Texas. The program assesses a student’s basic academic skills in reading, writing, and math. Passing the assessment is a prerequisite for enrollment in many college-level classes such as English 1301/1302, History 1301/1302, Math 1414, etc. Students who do not meet assessment standards may complete prerequisite requirements by taking developmental courses in the deficient area and passing them with a grade of C or higher. In some cases retesting will also be required. It is up to each student to be aware and informed about requirements that are subject to change. Additional information is available from the TSI Office. https://www1.dcccd.edu/cat0910/admiss/tsi.cm?loc=4f Students will learn to evaluate and analyze, write implementing different formats, such as comparison and contrast, proposals, etc. and to write for a variety of audiences. Also, they will acquire those skills in preparing a research paper.Obtaining Final Course Grades Using eConnect Final Grade Reports are no longer mailed.
