Anything MTEL related is probably the last thing any of us want to think about as we head into the last month of Summer Break, but it is important to familiarize yourself with these updates so there are no surprises. The updates for this academic year aim to help test takers and make the test preparation process easier.

A quick look:

  • A new testing center in Lexington, MA
  • The ability to highlight and strike-through text on the test
  • A larger text box for your Open Response Question answer
  • Interactive Practice Tests for Communications in Literacy
