Millers Analogies Test (MAT)

The Miller Analogies Test (MAT) is a high-level mental ability test requiring the solution of problems stated as analogies. It consists of 120 partial analogies that are to be completed in 60 minutes. 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. No one is permitted to use a dictionary or any other reference aid when taking the test.

On August 10, 2020, the Testing Center will be open for face-to-face exam administration ONLY for A&M-Texarkana students.  We will be operating at less than 50% capacity, and appointments are MANDATORY.  For the health and safety of the staff and other examinees, we ask that if you are ill or have been exposed to COVID-19 that you do not schedule an appointment OR that you cancel or reschedule your existing testing appointment by calling the Testing Center directly.

Face masks (coverings) in Testing Center, common areas, such as hallways, restrooms, and lobbies are MANDATORY.  If you come without a face mask, you will be unable to enter the Testing Center and turned away with no refund.  Examinees MUST wear a face mask and/or gloves into the examination room.

The Testing Center is taking extra precautions by sanitizing workstations between each examinee and will be practicing social distancing.  Please review COVID-19 Student Guide for campus guidelines.
