Suggestions for Using MDTP

MDTP provides educators the following resources to help plan and use the MDTP Assessment System.  

Aligning MDTP Topics to Standards

MDTP provides an alignment of MDTP Topics from each diagnostic test to the Common Core State Standards to assist LEAs to monitor and report growth.  MDTP also offers free training to educators to assist their ability to analyze student readiness and growth in these topics.
