MDTP provides a free assessment system to support secondary mathematics educators in California schools.


MDTP diagnostic readiness tests are used formatively in classrooms, departments, and schools to promote and support student readiness and success in college mathematics courses. 

  • Teachers use MDTP diagnostic tests to inform and enhance their classroom teaching practices.

  • Departments and schools use MDTP diagnostic tests to collectively shape instruction, assessment, support and intervention, and policy. 


MDTP Online Platform Upgrade

MDTP is excited to announce the successful upgrade of the MDTP online testing platform. While the new platform looks different, essentially, the functionality remains the same. Please review the MDTP Diagnostic Tutorials as needed to support this transition.

Additionally, the new platform includes new features that will benefit educators and students in efficiently diagnosing and preparing students for success in mathematics courses. These new features include:

  • Faster processing speeds
  • A single login page for students, faculty, administrator and placement users which can be found at the following link https://mdtpdiagnostic.ucsd.edu/
  • Ability for users to pull side-by-side comparison reports to dynamically inform instruction

All MDTP online readiness test users will be automatically directed to the new platform.  Please contact your regional site staff or the Director’s Office at mdtp@ucsd.edu if you have any questions or need support using the new platform. 

To register for online testing, please complete the appropriate online testing registration form.


MDTP Field Tests

MDTP is excited to announce two field tests that are available online and on paper for the 2018 - 2019 academic year.

  • Geometry Readiness Field Test (GR45D18) assesses essential topics needed for success in a geometry class aligned to California Common Core State Standards and includes concepts studied in CCSS-aligned first-year algebra
  • Second Year Algebra Readiness Field Test (SR45D18)assesses essential topics needed for success in a second-year algebra class aligned to California Common Core State Standards and includes concepts studied in CCSS-aligned geometry and first-year algebra
  • Middle School Entry-level Diagnostic Field Test (MS35D18) - assesses students' readiness in foundational topics necessary for success in a California common core entry-level middle school mathematics course. Field-testing should occur in Grade 6 classrooms. 
  • High School Mathematics Readiness Field Test (HS45D18) - assesses students' readiness in foundational topics necessary for success in a California common core entry-level high school mathematics course such as Algebra I or Integrated Math 1 as defined in the Mathematics Framework for California Schools.
