College Freshmen Needing English Remediation

All college-bound students in Texas are required to take the Texas Success Initiative Assessment (TSIA) to determine if they are ready for college-level coursework. Approximately 25% of the students who enroll at Victoria College have TSIA scores that indicate they are not ready in reading or writing (or both), so they are required to take a course in Integrated Reading and Writing. The Victoria College teaching staff’s incorporation of NROC English into the course increased the numbers of students who passed and decreased the attrition rate.
