The Professional Readiness Examination recently replaced the Basic Skills test. The Professional Readiness Examination consists of the following subtests:

What if I have already taken and passed one of the MTTC Basic Skills subtests?

If you have previously passed one or more Basic Skills (096) subtests, your passing status for each subtest you passed will be accepted and you will only need to take and pass any subtest(s) you have not yet passed.

What is meant by "Passing Score Alternatives"?

The passing score for each Professional Readiness Examination (PRE) subtest is 220. If a candidate has met or exceeded the passing score on two of the three PRE subtests, and he or she meets or exceeds the Alternative Score on the third PRE subtest, that candidate shall be considered to have passed the PRE as a whole. Select "MTTC Score Reporting" for a table of the Alternative Passing Scores.

Retake Policy for Computer-Based Testing Has Changed

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 30 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. See "Computer-Based Testing" for more information.
