The Miller Analogies Test (MAT) is a standardized test that is accepted by some programs in Schools of Education for admission purposes. We offer this test via computer as a service to our applicants and the community.
Please be aware that the GRE can be used for many of our graduate programs; the MAT can only be used for a few of them. Those programs include all of the Educational Policy, Planning and Leadership programs, master's and doctoral; and only a few programs in Curriculum and Instruction (Literacy Leadership and Gifted Education programs.) You cannot use the MAT for any program in counseling, school psychology, or counselor education, nor can you use it for the initial teacher licensure programs.
The test is 60 minutes long, and contains 120 analogies. You should allow about 1.5 hours to take the test as the demographic information required takes about 20-30 minutes to complete. This section must be completed before you actually start the test. You should plan on arriving at the School of Education 10-15 minutes prior to your test session.
If you are interested in taking a practice test, you can visit the Test Prep site.

MAT testing Days and Times
Unfortunately, due to concerns over the coronavirus (COVID-19), and current best practices regarding social distancing as a prevention strategy for disease transmission, we are canceling MAT testing through the beginning of May. While there have been no confirmed cases at William & Mary, we are taking this measure to do our part to be responsible during this fluid and rapidly evolving situation.
