Testing Program

Miller Analogies Test

The Miller Analogies Test (MAT) is a computer-based test that consists of 120 partial analogies to be completed in 60 minutes. You are not penalized for wrong answers; therefore, your scores are based on the number of items you answer correctly. At the end of testing, you will decide whether or not to process your test results. If you choose to process the results, your preliminary score will be displayed and a copy will be printed for you to take with you. An unofficial score report with be mailed by Pearson to you and the school/institutions of your choosing approximately 10-15 business days after Pearson receives your test.

The Test Center is merely a testing site. If you have any questions regarding your score upon completion of your test, you must contact Pearson directly at 1-800-622-3231 Monday - Friday, 8:30am - 5:00pm CST.
