MDTP on-line multiple-choice tests were designed to help individual students review their readiness for some mathematics courses and may be useful in preparing for some mathematical placement tests used by some California colleges and universities.
Each on-line test includes a diagnostic scoring report to help students identify strengths and weaknesses in some topic areas. These 40 question multiple-choice tests should be taken without a calculator. The recommended time needed for taking each test is approximately one hour, but there is no enforced time limit.
MDTP has two on-line tests available for student use to help them prepare for Precalculus and Calculus level mathematics courses.
- There is no fee for taking these tests.
- There is no fee for the diagnostic scoring report.
- Nothing is downloaded to your computer.
- No log-ins or passwords required.
- The tests can be taken more than once.
The MR test should be taken prior to courses typically called trigonometry, precalculus, or math analysis. The test assumes two years of algebra and a year of geometry in preparation for a precalculus course and has significant geometry content.
The CR test should be taken prior to a Calculus course.
