PAPER TESTING FAQ:

Before Administering an MDTP Test

  1. What tests does MDTP have available?
    Here are the current MDTP assessments and these are our recommendations for when to test for each course.
  2. Where can I order MDTP paper readiness materials?
    MDTP paper tests can be ordered here.
  3. How far in advance should I place my order?
    We recommend that orders be placed at least 2 weeks in advance to ensure you receive your package on time. If you plan on picking up your MDTP test materials at UCLA, we recommend doing the order at least 3 weeks in advance to ensure that we have enough test booklets and scantrons onsite to fulfill your order.
  4. How long will it take to receive my order?
    Most orders will be processed and shipped by MDTP at UCSD. You should get your testing materials within a week after placing your order unless you get an email from MDTP stating otherwise.

During Testing

  1. What information do I need to fill out on the Class Information Sheet?
    Please use this page to help complete your Class Information Sheet. Make sure that each teacher conducting the test provides an email address in order to receive students’ tests results in a timely manner.
  2. What information do students need to fill out on the Student Scantron?
    Students need to bubble in their First and Last name. All other information is optional. Make sure there are no extraneous markings on the scantron. Our scantron machine is highly sensitive and will not score scantrons with extraneous markings.

  1. What address should I use to ship my package?
    Our mailing address is
    UCLA Mathematics Diagnostic Testing Project

    We recommend getting a tracking number with your package to ensure receipt of delivery.
  2. When will I get my student test results back?
    Once we receive your package, you will receive your students’ test results within 2 work days via email. If any information is missing on the Class Information Sheet, such as, which exam was tested or the teachers’ email address, it may take longer to receive test results.
