Fall 2021 MDTP News

Dear Math Educator,

During the COVID-19 pandemic, MDTP will continue to support educators remotely during distance learning and hybrid models by offering online testing on the MDTP Diagnostic (Readiness) testing platform. This platform includes the following assessments:

  • Assessments of Preparedness Tests for Grades Six, Seven, and Eight
  • Readiness Tests for courses in Algebra 1/Integrated Math 1 through Calculus.

If your school is back on campus and you are interested in Paper Testing, please contact mdtp@ucla.edu to make sure we have enough testing materials to ship and/or that we will be on campus to score scantron.

Please welcome Olympia Olaluwoye, UCLA’s new MDTP Outreach Facilitator!
I am pleased to join the MDTP program and support educators as they engage students in the world of mathematics.  I have worked in education for over ten years, and l enjoy finding ways to help struggling students use real-life connections to understand mathematical concepts and strategies. – Olympia
