Miller Analogies Test

The Miller Analogies Test (MAT) is a high-level analytic ability test requiring individuals to solve problems that are stated as analogies.  It is intended to assess an individual’s ability to recognize relationships between ideas, fluency in the English language, and general knowledge of literature, philosophy, history, science, math, and the fine arts.  Most of the analogies on the MAT are verbal, but a few are quantitative.  The exam lasts 60 minutes and includes 120 partial analogies.
