About the Exam
Educators in Minnesota who wish to teach courses related to literature or communication arts will need to complete the licensure process, and that includes passing the MTLE Communication Arts/Literature's two subtests. These two tests are offered through a computer platform, and you will have 60 minutes for each test. Each subtest contains 50 multiple-choice questions. Subtest I deals with reading and literacy, while Subtest II covers writing, speaking and listening. While the tests are available year-round, appointments are still required. You can take both subtests on the same day or separate them into different testing appointments.
Preparing & Registering for the MTLE Communication Arts/Literature
Getting ready to take the MTLE Communication Arts/Literature exam starts off by first assessing your current level of knowledge, and you can do so by answering the questions on our lesson quizzes and chapter exams. As you work your way through these questions, you will immediately find out which chapter topics you need to review more closely. Of course, instead of starting with the quizzes and exams, you can simply make your way through the different chapters we offer. Watch every lesson for a robust refresher course, or just look through the chapters that seem least familiar.
Besides getting ready for the exam, you will need to complete the registration process, which requires first creating a user account through the MTLE webpage. After you create your own account, you can select the test you want to take, (e.g., the MTLE Communication Arts/Literature). Test-takers will have the option of selecting a preferred test date and testing location. If you need to change the date or location for any reason, you are allowed to do so up to 24 hours prior to the date in which you were originally scheduled. There is no fee for changing your test date or location, but you will have to pay a fee to take the actual tests.
