area of certification.

Who administers the test?
The Massachusetts Tests for Educator Licensure are administered by the Massachusetts Department of Education and Pearson Education, Inc. A comprehensive test development process was designed and implemented specifically to ensure that the content and difficulty level of the exam is appropriate.

MTEL Communication and Literacy Skills Test 3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
readermorrison More than 1 year ago
When I signed up to take the MTEL, I immediately purchased this book, and started studying. My biggest beef with this book is that the practice tests did not reflect the content of the actual test (which I took a few days ago.) Consequently, I wasted a lot of time studying vocabulary words, and definitions of grammatical terms because I thought I would have to provide written definitions for said vocabulary and grammar terms. Luckily, I printed out the practice tests from the MTEL website. I would recommend first printing out the practice test from the official website, and then using the study guide portion of this book to refresh your memory in areas of weakness.
