End of the year diagnostic testing

The end of the school year is one of the best times to administer MDTP diagnostic tests.  The results of testing helps teachers and math departments identify math topics learned well and those that students still struggle with.  The results can be used to dig deeper into the conceptual foundations and related misconceptions of math topics crucial for improving future classes.  The teacher can also distribute individualized diagnostic letters to help students reflect back on their mathematical successes and to plan for summer study.  

In addition to diagnostic tests, MDTP offers high school placement tests and written response items, as well as, professional development to use these materials effectively.

Remember, MDTP materials and services are provided free-of-charge.
