Everything You Need to Know About MTLE Scores

Blackboard Teaching vectors

So, you are planning to teach in Minnesota. You have studied the content you need to know for the MTLE exam and registered for the MTLE subtests you are planning to take. Now we will fill you in with the extra details that are good to know before taking the exam.

First, we will explain how the exams are scored and the scores that you need to pass. We will make sure you understand how to know whether you have passed the MTLE and how long you have to wait to receive your exam scores. And finally, we will even ensure that you know how long you have to wait before you can retake an MTLE test if you don’t pass.

Are you ready to get started? Let’s go!

How Are the MTLE Exams Scored?

The multiple-choice questions on the MTLE exams are scored and verified by computer. Your subtest total score is a scaled score based on the number of raw score points that you earn on each section of the exam.

Some subtests contain constructed-response questions, which are graded by a person. The guidelines for scoring written responses are included in the preparation materials for each exam, which can be found on the MTLE testing site.

What Score Do You Need to Pass the MTLE Test?

The passing score for each exam varies. Most tests require a score of 240 out of 300. You can check your specific test requirement on the MTLE testing website.

How Do You Interpret an MTLE Score Report?

Your score report will include the subtest(s) you took and your score and passing status for each subtest. You must pass all subtests in order to have passed the overall exam. Below this information, your report will show your performance within each subtest. There will be one to four plus signs next to each topic. The more answers you got correct, the more plus signs there will be.

To best understand your score report, make sure to familiarize yourself with the structure of the MTLE.

How Long Does it Take to Get MTLE Scores?

Your official MTLE scores will be emailed to you two to six weeks after your exam. Scores are released on specific dates, and you can determine the date for your results on the MTLE testing website.

How Hard is it to Pass an MTLE Exam?

The passing rate varies depending on the MTLE exam. The pedagogy tests have passing rates of over 95%. The content exams vary greatly. The MTLE Technical Report shows the passing rate for each exam.

How Long Do You Have to Wait Before You Can Retake an MTLE Exam?

How long does it take to get MEGA scores?

If you do not pass your MTLE exam, you must wait 30 before you retake it. You will also need to complete the MTLE registration process again. If you must retake a test more than three times, you can apply for a fee voucher, and you may be able to take the test for free.
