Test Preparation Materials

The below listed materials are the only official MTEL test preparation resources and are available on the MTEL website at no cost.

  • Test Information Guides - The booklets familiarize test-takers with the format and content of the tests. The booklets contain detailed information on how to prepare for the tests, including how to develop a study outline and what to expect on the day of the test. The booklets also provide sample test items and responses.

  • Test Objectives - The objectives list identifies content on the tests. The test objectives can be used to develop a study outline.

  • Practice Tests - Full-length sample tests that are similar to operational MTEL tests are available for most fields, and include worksheets for calculating a total score and identifying areas for further study. If you are retaking a test, information from your score report about test subarea performance may also be useful for preparation.

  • Test Preparation Video - The video provides an overview of the study resources available through the MTEL program and how they can be used to help you prepare for the test.

  • Computer-based Testing Tutorial - The tutorial demonstrates how to navigate a test that is given on computer, how to indicate answers, and how to use the features of a computer-based test.

  • Faculty Guide - Although designed for use by higher education faculty, this guide provides information that may also be helpful to candidates, including additional sample open response items and analyses for the Communication and Literacy Skills and General Curriculum tests.
