The MTLE Social Studies exam is a required exam that ensures candidates have sufficient knowledge in all relevant subject areas to teach secondary school.
Taking the MTLE Social Studies exam can be a daunting task. Because its goal is to test your classroom readiness across the spectrum of content, it covers a lot of ground. This breadth can make it hard to know how to prepare. Luckily, if you understand how the test is organized and what it is testing, you will have no problem prepping for this test. In order to cover everything, the exam is broken into two subareas–which are then broken down into a total of nine objectives.
What to Expect
|Questions||Time Limit (Minutes)|
You will have 60 minutes to complete 50 multiple-choice questions per subtest.
The MTLE Social Studies exam consists of 50 multiple-choice questions. The test is administered via computer. Because of this, there can be a variety in the style of questions that are asked. You should expect to see three main types of questions: single-answer, stimulus-based, and cluster. You should expect most questions to require you simply to click an oval next to the correct answer. However, there may be questions that utilize the technology more. They may ask you to zoom in on details in a graphic or picture, click boxes next to all that apply, click on check boxes, click on parts of a graphic or sentence, use a drag and drop feature, or select your answer from a drop-down menu.
Now that you know the “what” and “how”, it is time to develop a solid test-taking strategy that will maximize your preparation.
First, go through the test and answer all of the questions that you are confident about. The questions that will probably be fastest to answer are the single-answer questions. These will be direct-response questions or unfinished statements. Make sure to read all of the answer options before responding.
Stimulus-based questions are also a good place to start. Look at the chart, graph or image first, then examine the answer choices before selecting the right one. Just like with single-answer questions, though, if you don’t know the answer right away, move on and come back to it.
Once you have answered all of the questions that are easiest for you, head back to the beginning to work on the questions you skipped. (NOTE: You can mark questions you are skipping as you go so that you remember to go back to them later.)
- Just being able to recite the competencies and descriptive statements is not enough. Very little of the test will be recall; instead it will mostly focus on critical thinking and application. That’s why you should make sure you practice!
