MDTP 9th Grade Placement Tests

MDTP 9th grade placement tests were developed in response to SB-359 and are intended to provide California schools with a tool to help inform placement for students entering 9th grade courses aligned to the California Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CA-CCSSM). These tests can be used as one of multiple placment measures, per SB-359 requirements. All MDTP placement tests are currently in the field-test phase of test development.
