How hard are the tests?
Generally, the tests will have questions of varying difficulty. While some of the questions will be solvable by most of the students, the tests will also contain questions that can answered by only the most capable students. These are contests and there are questions that are meant to separate out the top students.

How does one administer the test?
During each testing period, the sponsors will download copies of the tests in Adobe .pdf format. On any available day during the testing period, the sponsor may administer the test. After the tests are scored, the sponsor will go to the student information page and enter the scores. Complete details on how to give and score each test are given on the "Test Details" page and a calendar of events is available.

How can I enter scores and student math levels?
Student names are automatically loaded from the national Mu Alpha Theta when a sponsor navigates to the student page. The sponsor will have to select the appropriate math level (division) for each student. During the testing period for each round, the students raw scores are entered into the database. Scores may only be entered/modified during that time.
