Miller Analogies Test
The Miller Analogies Test (MAT) is a computer-based test that consists of 120 analogies to be answered in 60 minutes. You are not penalized for wrong answers and your scores are based on the number of items you answer correctly. You may not leave the room during the test for any reason. If you do need to leave the room, your test will not be scored and monies will not be refunded. You and the schools or institutions you have selected should receive your scores approximately 10-15 business days after Pearson receives your test. You will also receive an unofficial score report upon completion of your test at the Test Center.
