  • Mathematics Diagnostic Testing Project (MDTP)  - a grade 7 Mathematics Readiness Test.  This online math readiness assessment is usually administered annually to sixth-grade students at the five feeder elementary schools - Cardiff, Del Mar, Encinitas, Rancho Santa Fe and Solana Beach.
  • Integrated Math B Honors Readiness Test (IMBHRT) -  an optional SDUHSD test. Any grade 6 student who wishes to enroll in Integrated Math B Honors in 7th grade must take the SDUHSD IMBHRT and score 70% or higher. It is designed to measure a student's readiness to take 8th-grade level Integrated Math B Honors as a 7th grader.  This assessment is challenging and designed for students already on an accelerated math pathway.  If a student is planning to take the IMBHRT, you will need to complete an online registration form, linked here.
