About MDTP

MDTP primarily serves schools, colleges, and public universities in California. Please use the navigation bar on the left for more information about the project and what materials and services are available.

All CSU/UC MDTP tests are copyrighted, their content may not be used in other test forms. MDTP materials are provided to schools with the understanding that the tests will be kept secure and all test administrations will be scored by MDTP regional offices or MDTP licensed vendors (Daskala, Illuminate Education). All licensed vendors are required to submit scoring data to MDTP to enable the project to send printed reports directly to students' teachers.

MDTP regional offices (sites) are located on CSU and UC campuses and are supported by their campus and a grant from the California Academic Partnership Program (CAPP).

New Common Core-Aligned Tests

MDTP has finished developing its first three readiness tests aligned to the new California Common Core Standards for Mathematics. With the creation of the Grade 8 Mathematics course and the change in expectations for what is taught in Grade 7 Mathematics and Algebra I, the MDTP Workgroup began assembling a Grade 7 Math Readiness Test, Grade 8 Math Readiness Test, and Algebra Readiness Test. The Algebra Readiness Test became the High School Math Readiness Test in 2014 after it was determined that the same prerequisite knowledge is tested to measure readiness for both traditional Algebra I and integrated Math I. The new tests for 7th Grade Readiness (7R40A15), 8th Grade Readiness (8R40A15), and High School Readiness (HS45A15) will be available at regional MDTP sites in early August.

In 2014, the Workgroup also began work on two new tests for schools implementing the integrated pathway. These tests will measure readiness for high school Math II and Math III courses, and field testing will continue in 2015-16. Please contact your regional MDTP site director to field test the new Integrated Second Year Readiness Test (IS45D15) and Integrated Third Year Readiness Test (IT45D15).

MDTP Video Documentaries

MDTP has produced three videos to document how MDTP tests are used formatively in classrooms, departments, and schools through interviews with teachers, students, and administrators in their classrooms and offices.
