Major Field Test
At Tennessee Technological University, the ETS Major Field Test (MFT) in physics, a standardized test utilized by a number of universities across the country, has been given to all graduating seniors as an exit exam since 1989. The overall average percentile ranking on the MFT achieved by the 68 TTU physics seniors during that period is 75; the median percentile ranking is 81. A substantial number (25 of 68) students have achieved a score at or above the 90th percentile.
The graph below shows the three year average scaled score of TTU physics majors on the MFT in physics, compared to the national average.
