Computer-Based Testing

Is Computer-Based Testing Right for Me?

The following MTTC tests are now offered on computer in addition to the regularly scheduled paper-based test administrations:

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

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:

If after your computer-based test appointment you wish to retake the test, you must wait at least 24 hours before you will be able to re-register for the same computer-based test or subtest. However, you must wait 60 days between each computer-based attempt of the same test or subtest, per the MTTC Retake Policy. This means that you will only be able to take a test or each Professional Readiness Examination subtest one time in any testing window.

Test Administration

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.

Score Reporting

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.

Scores are reported on the score report date for the testing window. See "Test Dates" for score report dates and "Release of Your Test Scores" for additional information on score reporting.
