MDTP provides testing materials, scoring results, and written response materials to teachers in California schools. The project funding supports its services to California precollegiate schools, to the University of California, and to The California State University and enables MDTP to provide materials and services without charge to precollegiate teachers and schools and to California's two public university systems. Materials are provided to precollegiate teachers, schools, and districts with the understanding that student responses will be scored by MDTP and the student's current teacher will be sent MDTP Diagnostic Test Results reports without charge to help teacher prepare their students for success in mathematics courses. Teachers and schools can also choose to use Daskala's online testing platform to administer the tests to their students and access those results in online which allows for more robust report features. Please go to MDTP's Daskala pages for more information.
MDTP ships test booklets and related materials only to accredited schools, districts, county offices of education, or other accredited agency addresses. MDTP does not ship to residential addresses. Teachers, schools, and districts should keep the test booklets clean and secure, since they may be reused for several years. Though MDTP tests are low stakes when compared to many other assessments, the diagnostic value of MDTP tests is enhanced when the test booklets are kept secure. Test booklets and answer keys should not be provided to parents or tutors or removed from the school premises. However, teachers may elect to review some test items with students and/or parents or tutors when discussing students’ preparedness for a mathematics course or when discussing topics requiring review.
