Is Computer-Based Testing Right for Me?

Computer-based MTTC tests are available during specific testing windows on a first-come, first-served basis. Each window contains twelve days available for testing. Refer to the following table for information about each computer-based testing window currently open for registration.

Registration for MTTC computer-based testing is available by selecting "Register Now" on the MTTC website. You should try to register as early as possible before your desired test date. Before registering, you may check real-time seat availability and review test center locations.

Please note seat availability information is subject to change. Due to the amount of time required to process a registration, you may not be able to schedule an appointment to test if you register within three calendar days of the day on which you plan to test. You may need to schedule your test appointment during the next available testing window.

Note: Testing appointments for Spanish (028) are available during the May window only.

*Please note that score report dates for CBT administrations may fall during the late or emergency registration period for the next paper-based test administration (see "Test Dates for Paper-Based Testing" for registration deadlines). Late and emergency registration fees will not be waived for examinees who take a test on computer and then after receiving their CBT score report choose to register to retake the same test at the next paper-based administration. Also, examinees who register for a paper-based test administration before receiving their scores and later learn that they passed the same test on computer will not receive refunds for any testing fees paid.

Test results may be delayed for fields undergoing setting of passing scores. The website will be updated as information becomes available regarding test fields and test administrations (paper-based and/or computer-based) that may be affected by passing score activities.

Please allow 72 hours from the score report date before accessing MDE certification files using your score(s). Preliminary test results provided at the conclusion of a computer-based test administration will not be used by the MDE for issuing teaching certificate(s) or endorsement(s).

A full list of tests is available on the "Test Selection" page.

Test dates for the next program year will be posted here in the summer of 2015.
