Order of Merit List will use the MAT and CLA+ for Cadet career placement
While the GPA is currently the single most important factor for Cadet placement on the Order of Merit List, other cognitive tests such as the Miller Analogies Test (MAT), the Collegiate Learning Assessment (CLA+), and the Graduate Record Exam (GRE) will be used in 2016 as part of a pilot program at Cadet Command.
About the Miller Analogies Test (MAT)
The Miller Analogies Test (MAT) is sometimes accepted as an alternative to the Graduate Records Exam (GRE). It is a high-level test of analytical ability that requires solving problems stated as analogies. The MAT consists of 120 partial analogies that must be completed in 60 minutes.
The test measures the ability to recognize relationships between ideas, fluency in the English language, and general knowledge of the humanities, natural sciences, mathematics, and social sciences.
