MDTP Fall 2022 Mailer: News, Updates and New Precalculus Tests

Dear Math Educator,

We hope you had a wonderful summer break! 

To help prepare for the school year ahead, MDTP provides diagnostic testing at no charge for California primary and secondary educators. Teachers can use test reports to identify critical math topics students learned well and those that students still struggle with. A list of MDTP assessments and their descriptions can be found here

Please reach out if you have any questions or concerns.

Sincerely,

Nora and Olympia

Order Paper Test booklets here. As of February 2022, MDTP Paper Testing protocols have changed. Test booklets will still be shipped to school sites, but student scantrons will now be printed through the online platform and class information sheets are no longer needed. Student scantrons will then be scanned and uploaded onto the online platform to be scored. Paper PDF Tutorials

DESCRIPTION OF FALL WORKSHOPS

If you would like to stay informed about upcoming Fall Virtual Workshops, please complete this form

Navigating the Online Platform for Online Testing (for users new or unfamiliar with the MDTP online platform) In this session, we will explore the MDTP diagnostic platform, how to set-up classes and prepare for online testing. We will also view a sample test results report and analyze data to identify misconceptions.

Administering MDTP Paper Assessments In this session, we will go through the new procedures to administer MDTP Paper Assessments. This will include setting up classes on the online platform, printing and scoring student scantrons. We will also view a sample test results report and analyze data to identify misconceptions.

Enacting Re-engagement Strategies In this session, we will analyze diagnostic data to identify common misconceptions, unpack the mathematics needed to address the misconception and explore instructional strategies to re-engage students with the content


TEACHERS NEEDED TO FIELD TEST MDTP ASSESSMENTS

Field testing ensures 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. Field testing will be done through our Online Platform for the following assessments:

  • Assessment of Preparedness for 7th Grade Mathematics Field Test (7M40D22)
  • Algebra 1/Integrated Math 1 Readiness Field Test (Parallel Versions AMDEF4522) 
  • Quantitative Reasoning Diagnostic Field Test (QR45D22)

Please email mdtp@ucla.edu for more information regarding the MDTP Field Test for the 2022 – 2023 school year. 


THE NEW PRECALCULUS TEST!

After a 2-year extensive field test, the Precalculus Readiness Test PR45A22 is ready for online testing! Paper Test booklets will be available pending printing fulfillment. Thank you to all the teachers who helped us through this process. Your participation in MDTP field-testing is an essential element of the test development process.
