MAT General Information

The SF State Testing Center does not administer the MAT. For further information about taking the MAT, visit Pearson Assessments.


The Mill Analogies Test is a high-level mental ability test which requires the solution of a series of intellectual problems stated in the form of analogies.

All forms of the test are equivalent-that is, of equal difficulty. The item content samples a number of subject matter fields. No one field is represented by more than a limited number of items, and some items are included specifically to pose novel tasks. Accordingly, the Psychological Corporation does not suggest any particular subject matter to review as preparation for taking the test.
