Miller Analogies Test (MAT)

About Miller Analogies Test (MAT)

mat logoThe Miller Analogies Test (MAT) is a high-level test of analytical ability that requires the solution of problems stated as analogies. The MAT consists of 120 partial analogies that allow you 60 minutes to complete. The test measures your ability to recognize relationships between ideas, your fluency in the English language, and your general knowledge of the humanities, natural sciences, mathematics, and social sciences.

Many Graduate programs, including Western Connecticut State University’s (WCSU) Division of Graduate Studies, use the MAT as a way to determine eligibility for entrance into graduate programs.
