Miller Analogy Test (MAT)
The MAT is a high-level mental ability test where problems are stated as analogies, and is accepted for admission to a variety of graduate programs. 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. For more information about the test, obtain the Candidate Information Booklet available for downloading at the Miller Analogies Test website or call 800.622.3231.

At the time of testing candidates must present the exam fee and two forms of identification. One form of identification must be a non-expired government-issued photo ID (such as a driver's license or passport); the second can be another form of identification, such as a social security card or a birth certificate. Candidates who have taken the MAT previously must indicate as such when making their appointment.
At the time of testing, candidates may designate up to three score recipients. Candidates should bring the exact addresses of score recipients and the program within each school or college where scores should be sent. Failure to bring the correct names of the programs and the complete mailing addresses may delay score reports.
Scores are issued by Pearson. If the candidate elects to submit the exam for processing, the candidate may receive a preliminary score report immediately and the designated score recipients should receive the scores approximately three weeks after testing. Candidates are responsible for verifying that the score reports reach the correct score recipients. There may be an additional charge by Pearson if a duplicate score report is requested.
