AbstractThis paper provides preliminary findings on the Texas Academic Skills Program (TASP) Test given to all Texas public college and university freshman, particularly regarding minority student performance. Of all students, 81% passed all three sections of the test, mathematics, reading, and essay. The passing group represented 87% of Anglos, 59% of blacks, and 69% of Hispanics. The TASP is not a timed test; students may take up to 5 hours to complete any one portion. This format might reward students who persist. Students can take each section separately, and some can pay for study guides and preparation classes, concentrating on each section separately. Female Anglo and Hispanic students did better than males, but black males surpassed black females. Failures in reading were quite small. Females failed mathematics at almost twice the rate they failed writing, whereas males failed writing at about twice the rate they failed mathematics. Failure on the writing section of the test is a sign of particular trouble. Apparently, students cannot perform in college without basic writing skills. This test is seen as a program designed for assessment, advising, placement, remediation, and evaluation as part of a program to develop academic skills. (DHP)
