MTEL: Massachusetts Tests for Educator Licensure

Cape Cod Community College is an administration site for the Massachusetts Department of Education's MTEL tests.

The Massachusetts Tests for Educator Licensure (MTEL) was initiated by the Massachusetts Department of Elemenatary and Secondary Education in 1998 as part of their statewide education reform initiative for educators seeking PreK to Grade 12 academic licenses.

The MTEL includes a test of communication and literacy skills as well as tests of subject matter knowledge. The tests are designed to help ensure that Massachusetts educators can communicate adequately with students, parents/guardians, and other educators and that they are knowledgeable in the subject matter of the license(s) sought. MTEL includes tests for candidates seeking vocational technical and adult basic education licenses.  For more information, please access the following sites:
