General Information

The THEA test is a five-hour test designed to provide information about the reading, math and writing skills of students entering Texas public colleges and universities. The content of the THEA is the same as the former TASP Test. 

  • There are three sections to the THEA test (reading, math and writing), each containing 40 to 50 multiple-choice questions.
  • The reading section has about seven passages that are 300 to 700 words long and questions about each passage.
  • The math section covers fundamental math, algebra, geometry and problem solving.
  • The writing section has a written essay of 300 to 600 words and multiple-choice questions.

 The THEA can be taken at Tyler Junior College.
