What Do We Mean When We Say Test-Aligned?

Our curriculum team studies all of the standards and competencies for the CTEL exam and cross-references them with the current and previous questions released by the official testing company. We then work with content and teaching experts to distill down what test-takers need to know. No matter where you are in the study guide, you can always see how the concept you are learning is aligned to the test standards.

Guide Features

Simple to Use Study Guides. Designed for You.

We’ve taken the guesswork out of what to study. Our guides are aligned to the exact standards of the official CTC exam and structured so you build on the concepts you need to know. Use the “search” feature to see where any particular standard appears within the guide.

Track Your Progress Within the Process.

Study Guides are organized into learning modules and then smaller sections that include instructional content and videos, flash cards, and quizzes. Explanations are provided for each of the choices, so you understand why an answer is correct.

Full-Length Practice Tests.

Each study guide comes equipped with full-length practice tests. Full of authentic and test-aligned questions, these practice tests mimic the test day experience to ensure you arrive on test day ready to pass!
