College Entrance Exams: SAT, ACT, and THEA
The purpose of the college entrance exams is to provide the college administration with a common measure of ability in order to understand and compare applicants from varying educational backgrounds. The Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT I) and the American College Testing Program (ACT) provide that common measure of ability. The admission officer may combine your SAT I or ACT score with high school grades and/or class rank to determine your probability of success on the campus. Therefore, the first step in the college application process is to take either the SAT I or ACT. Compare SAT vs. ACT
The Texas Higher Education Assessment (THEA) is an instructional program designed to ensure that students attending public institutions of higher learning in Texas and students entering educator preparation programs in Texas have the academic skills necessary to perform effectively in college level work. All students who will attend a state college in Texas are required by law to take the THEA unless exemptions are met.
