What is MDTP?

The Mathematics Diagnostics Testing Project (MDTP) develops and provides diagnostic tools and training to support California mathematics educators in preparing students for success in current and subsequent mathematics courses.

MDTP tests also provide adequate diagnostic information about their preparedness, making it very easy for teachers and students to directly identify and focus on areas that need improvements.

Having licensed MDTP tests, Knowledge Tools is committed to providing online diagnostic tests to every student in the United States.

Which devices do I need to use the online platform?

The Knowledge Tools testing site supports all modern browsers (Chrome, Edge, Firefox, Safari) found on PCs and Macs, as well as Chromebooks, iPads, and Android Tablets. We do not recommend nor support using browsers on phones.

Can students take the tests at home?

Testing in a classroom, with a faculty member, is recommended. However, some of our schools do test incoming, remote students from home. If security is a concern for remote test takers, you might consider using a proctoring service, like ProctorU.

Can the diagnostic test results be exported?

Yes, all of the data is exportable. You can choose to view, print, or download the critical information you need to make data driven decisions in your classroom.

Can I customize the tests?
No, the MDTP tests we offer are purposefully developed and validated by MDTP workgroup members, including faculty from CSU, UC, community colleges, and secondary schools.
Can I add more testing students later on?

If during the course of a subscription year a school exceeds the number of testing student in their tier, the school/district will be invoiced for a pro-rated upgrade to the next subscription tier.

As an example, a school which holds a subscription plan for up to 200 students (tier 1). During month 8, the school adds new student enrollments, and their total number of testing students is now 300. The school/district will be invoiced for 5 months of the difference between Tier 1 and Tier 2.

((New Tier amount – Old Tier amount ) / 12 months) X Number of months at the new tier.((459 – 799) / 12) X 5 = $140
