Math Placement Test


The Math Diagnostic Testing Project (MDTP) has four different levels.  You will be asked to select the level at which you feel best prepared.  Remember, no calculators are permitted during testing!

To help you determine which Math Test level is right for you, Santiago Canyon College has provided several resources that we encourage you to utilize prior to taking the MDTP:
