The THEA , which stands for Texas Higher Education Assessment, is important for all those students of Texas who wish to enter into college or university for a certificate or a diploma program after their school is over. If you are one of those students, then you must start planning out your preparation for taking the three sections of the test. This particular article is going to explain the registration procedure and the different options that are available for registering for this purpose according to the format that you choose to take up: internet-based test and Quick test.

The Registration Process (Internet-based Test)

Following is a step-wise checklist for the registration procedure for the Internet-based Test:

Step 1: The first step towards this procedure should be to contact your educational institution to determine whether you are eligible to take up the test or not. For the same purpose, you need to refer to the tab 'test sites' by going to the link http://www.thea.nesinc.com/TA_IBTtestsites.asp.

Step 2: The next step is to set up an online account at the official website. You need to set up this account as you will be able to book the test or make any changes only through this account. Additionally, you will also receive your scores online by logging in to this account. This can be done at the link www.thea.starttest.com.

Step 3: While registering, you also need to provide the following essential information:

  • Name, address and contact information,
  • Last four digits of your social security number,
  • Student ID Number (which is provided by the educational institution),
  • Date of birth and
  • E-mail address (you need to note that the email address and password you provide while registering for the test is the same one that will be used to check your scores online)

Step 4: This step is applicable in case you want to request any alternative testing arrangements. Additionally, you need to review some background questions for the procedure to move ahead.
