The Miller Analogies Test (MAT) is a high-level mental ability test requiring the solution of problems stated as analogies.
The test consists of 120 items to be administered in 60 minutes. The 20 extra items are experimental items that will not count towards examinees' scores and are being field-tested for possible use on new test forms.
Fluency in the English language, a broad knowledge of literature, philosophy, history, science, mathematics, and fine arts, and the ability to reason out relationships may contribute to performance on the MAT.
There is no foreign-language edition of the MAT.
On this test, the use of notes, books, calculators (including watch calculators, pagers, cellular phones, cameras, PDAs, other recording devices, or any other electronic devise or reference material is prohibited. You are also not allowed to wear a hat with a bill or a brim without prior permission to do so. If you have a watch with an alarm or chime, it must be turned off during test.

A Candidate Information Booklet is available online by going to the MAT website.
You can also obtain sample tests by buying an MAT preparation guide by contacting Graduate Services or at your local bookstore or by visiting your public library.
A "passing" score depends on the requirements of the universities to which you are applying. Please contact the schools to which you are applying to find out what score you need in order to "pass".
The unofficial results will be available after taking the test. The official results of the MAT will be mailed to you in approximately 2-3 weeks from Harcourt Assessments.
FEE FOR ADMINISTRATION CURRENTLY IS $100.00 (we currently accept only a check or money order)

There are a number of alternate, comparable forms of the MAT. The form of the MAT administered to an examinee who retakes the MAT is determined by that examinee's MAT testing history.
If an examinee retaking the MAT is administered the same form more than once in a twelve-month period, the examinee's retest score will be voided and will not be reported to anyone. For this reason, score reports include a retest admission ticket.
When you apply to retake the MAT, be sure to inform the PSC secretary that you have taken the MAT within the past 12 months, and be sure to bring your retest admission ticket with you when you report for testing.
