University of Alaska Southeast Ketchikan Learning Center
Adds MAT Testing Service


November 16, 2005

Ketchikan, Alaska - The University of Alaska Southeast Ketchikan Learning Center will now offer the Miller Analogies Test (MAT). The MAT is often required for anyone wanting to enter graduate school.

The Miller Analogies Test (MAT) is a high-level, analytic ability test that requires the solution of problems stated as analogies. The MAT consists of 120 partial analogies that are to be completed in 60 minutes.


The MAT test forms include 100 core items, which count toward your score, and 20 experimental items that are being tried out for use on future test forms, which do not affect your score. Examinees may not request to take only the core items or to have only the core items scored. Because you will not know which items are experimental and which count toward your score, it is very important that you do your best on all the items on the test.

The MAT is intended to measure 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. There is no foreign-language edition of the MAT. You are not permitted to use a dictionary or any other reference aid when taking the MAT.

The Ketchikan campus offers paper-based MAT testing. The fee for each test is $75 and is non-refundable. An appointment for testing can be made after the testing fee has been paid in the campus Business Office. Tests are scheduled on an as-needed basis. Call 228-4560 for more information.

The University of Alaska Southeast Ketchikan Campus provides a wide variety of educational and vocational courses throughout the year. Many course offerings are available locally and at a distance via web-based, audio conference and satellite course offerings.
