Passing one or more MTEL (Massachusetts Test for Educator Licensure) exams is required for all those hoping to become licensed or add a license. The information on this page is not comprehensive, and is provided to help members access resources to prepare for the exams. Preparing for and passing any MTEL exam requires hard work and independent study on the part of each individual. The BTU does not guarantee that any of the courses or resources listed below will lead to a passing score.
The MTEL Website is the home for all things MTEL, including test information and registration, test preparation resources and more. Using the MTEL-provided Practice Tests can be a great first diagnostic step.
