In order to secure the licensure needed to become a reading teacher for students in grades K-12, educators must take and pass the Minnesota Teacher Licensure Examinations (MTLE) Reading Teacher assessment. They must also fulfill other basic skills requirements before receiving their license. The assessment is broken into two subtests that can be taken separately or in one appointment. They each consist of 50 multiple-choice questions and require passing scores of 240. The subtests are available year-round on a first-come, first-serve basis in Minnesota and throughout the nation, as well as in Canada, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.
