The Michigan Test for Teacher Certification, or MTTC, is the primary tool used by Michigan to determine which prospective teachers are skilled and knowledgeable enough to become a full-time teacher. The prospective teacher will need to take at least two tests in order to become a certified teacher in the state of Michigan: the MTTC Professional Readiness Examination, which is a basic teaching skills test; as well as the subject-area test related to their preferred field of education. The Professional Readiness Examination will consist of 129 multiple-choice questions and 2 constructed-response assignments, in which the test-taker will have four and a half hours to complete. The subject- area tests vary in question number and time limit; however, all tests will have multiple-choice questions. The Language tests will also have an added constructed-response section.

The MTTC certification examinations are graded on a scaled score system with a range of 100 to 300. This means that the number of correct responses a test-taker completes is scaled based on the difficulty of the exam; however, Pearson, the creators of the exam, state that a score of 220 or higher will be considered passing. The test-taker will only receive an exact numeric score only if they do not pass the test. At the Mometrix Academy, you will find a vast amount of free MTTC practice test questions that can help you prepare for your certification exam.
