MDTP 9th Grade Assessments

MDTP 9th grade assessments were developed in response to SB-359 and are intended to help inform course options for students entering 9th grade courses aligned to the California Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CA-CCSSM). These tests should be used as one of multiple measures, per SB-359 requirements. 


Platform Opens December 2021

The MDTP Assessment Platform will open in December 2021 at full capacity for use.
