Computer-based testing (CBT) is available during specific testing windows at testing centers throughout Michigan and across the nation. Refer to "Test Dates" for a list of the testing windows currently open for registration and to "Test Sites" for information about available testing centers across the United States.
Registration for computer-based testing is available only on the Internet by selecting "Register Now" on the MTTC website. Fees for computer-based testing differ from fees for paper-based testing. The following guidelines apply to computer-based testing registration:
- You should plan to register as early as possible before your desired testing window. Test appointments are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis.
- You must wait 60 days after taking a computer-based MTTC test before retaking the same test on computer.
- Once you have registered, you may not change your test selection for that one test session unless you withdraw your registration and register again. (See "Test Selection" for more information about test sessions and registration.)
- For the Professional Readiness Examination, you must pass all three subtests to meet the requirement for Michigan Teacher Certification.
- You may register to take any one, or all three, Professional Readiness subtests (i.e., Reading, Mathematics, Writing) in one test session.
- The length of that one test session is determined by the number of subtests you've selected.
- You may not schedule subtests in different test sessions of the same testing window. However, you may schedule subtests in different testing windows.
In computer-based testing, examinees complete the tests by selecting answers on-screen to multiple-choice questions and typing responses to the constructed-response assignment, if applicable. See "Reporting to the Test Site," "What to Bring to the Test Site," and "Test Site Rules" for details about the day of the test, including information about identification and security policies.
Unofficial test results for the tests or subtests containing only multiple-choice questions will be provided at the testing center at the conclusion of your test and will indicate pass/fail status. If you took a test or subtest with a constructed-response assignment, this will be indicated on the unofficial test results printout. The printout will also include a brief explanation of how the constructed-response assignment will be scored.
