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 Test Development for the 2019-20 Academic Year

MDTP provides the full spectrum of diagnostic assessments from grades 6 through coursework in calculus with the release of three final versions of Common Core aligned tests and two in development as field tests.

MDTP Newly Released Course-level Readiness Tests

MDTP releases three course-level readiness tests that are aligned to Common Core instructional expectations and available free in online and paper versions.

  • Algebra 1/Integrated 1 Readiness Test (AMR45A19) - Assesses students’ readiness in foundational topics necessary for success in a California Common Core entry-level Algebra I or Integrated Math 1 course as defined in the Mathematics Framework for California Schools. (Replaces the High School Readiness Test)
  • Geometry Readiness Test (GR45A19) - Assesses students’ readiness in foundational topics necessary for success in a California Common Core Geometry course as defined in the Traditional Pathway in the Mathematics Framework for California Schools. 
  • Second Year Algebra Readiness Test (SR45A19)- Assesses students’ readiness in foundational topics necessary for success in a California Common Core second-year algebra course as defined in the Traditional Pathway in the Mathematics Framework for California Schools.

MDTP Field Tests

MDTP is excited to announce two field tests that are available online and on paper for the 2019 - 2020 academic year.

  • Assessment of Preparedness for 6th Grade Mathematics Field Test (6M35D19) This diagnostic field test assesses students' preparedness 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.   
  • Mathematical Analysis Readiness Field Test (MR45D19)This diagnostic field test assesses students' readiness in foundational topics necessary for success in a precalculus course or other courses at that level after completing a California Common Core Integrated Math 3 or Algebra 2 course as defined in the Mathematics Framework for California Schools. Field-testing should occur in precalculus or math analysis courses.
