Field Testing 2018

Field testing insures that MDTP tests are of the highest quality, reflect the performance and needs of California math classrooms, and give math educators the information they need to be more effective.

This year, MDTP is introducing a new High School Readiness assessment that updates the current HS readiness test to more fully align with the goals of the California Common Core standards.  The Middle School Readiness, Geometry, and Algebra 2 Readiness field tests have been updated to reflect results from last year’s field testing.

These diagnostic field tests assesses students’ readiness in foundational topics necessary for success in California Common-Core aligned classrooms as described below:

Common Core Aligned Readiness Field Tests* Test Code Field Test Year
Middle School Readiness

Field-testing should occur in Grade 6 classrooms.  35 questions.



High School (Algebra 1/ Integrated Math 1)  Readiness.
45 questions.



Geometry Readiness
45 questions



Algebra 2 Readiness
45 questions.



If appropriate, we recommend that you use the field test versions, but be advised that field testers also agree to administer a post test and a brief end of course survey in the spring. Field testing is vital to maintaining the reliability and high quality of MDTP assessments and results, so we encourage and appreciate your participation.

MDTP is a statewide collaboration of the CSU and UC systems and the California Academic Partnership Program intended to support and advance secondary math instruction. MDTP develops, distributes, scores, and reports the results of multiple choice tests that measure student readiness for mathematics courses ranging from Math 6 to Calculus. MDTP at UCLA offers full support for MDTP materials and services at no charge to secondary schools in LA and Ventura Counties.
