About MTEL Exams

Massachusetts Tests for Educator Licensure (MTEL) exams are used for teacher certification purposes in the state of Massachusetts. The exams, which are administered by Pearson Education, Inc., are available for aspiring PreK-12, vocational and adult education teachers. The exams cover many academic subjects, including biology, business, English, math, music, physical education and speech. MTEL exams are designed to evaluate candidates on the types of literacy, communication and academic skills that are needed in order to teach professionally in the state.

Licensure requirements for PreK-12 educators involve passing the MTEL Communication and Literacy Assessment plus subject-specific assessments based on the candidate's desired areas of specialization. Those who are pursuing a Preliminary Vocational Technical license must pass a written and performance subject matter test, plus either the Vocational Technical Literacy Test or the Communication and Literacy Skills test. Provisional and Professional Adult Basic Education licenses require candidates to pass the Communication and Literacy Skills test and the Adult Basic Education subject matter test. Be sure to check with the official MTEL website for additional licensing requirements pertaining your professional goals.

MTEL tests generally consist of multiple-choice questions and open-response assignents. Most exams are 4 hours long, and they contain around 100 multiple-choice questions and 2 open-response assignments each. MTEL exams are available throughout the year, and scores range between 100 and 300. In most cases, the passing score for an MTEL assessment is 240. You can register for your exams on the official MTEL website, and following your exam date, you'll be able to receive your scores by mail, email or via download from your MTEL account.
