The Miller Analogies Test (MAT) is a high-level mental ability test requiring solutions to problems stated as analogies. It consists of 120 partial analogies that must be completed in 60 minutes. Fluency in the English language, a broad knowledge of literature, philosophy, history, science, mathematics, and fine arts, and the ability to reason out relationships may contribute to successful performance on the MAT. It is designed to demonstrate candidates’ analytical thinking, an ability that is critical for success in both graduate school and professional life, and research has found performance on analogies to represent one of the best measures of verbal comprehension and analytical thinking. Graduate schools use the MAT to identify candidates whose knowledge and abilities go beyond merely memorizing and repeating information. The MAT is sometimes administered as an alternative to the GRE test.
