MTLE Study Guide Updates

The Minnesota Professional Educator Licensing and Standards Board and Pearson are pleased to announce that the MTLE study guides are being updated. Each updated study guide will include a set of sample test questions equal to the full scorable set of questions on a test form. (Note that operational tests may include additional test questions that are being evaluated for future administrations and that do not affect a candidate's score.)

Additionally, the updated study guides include rationales for each multiple-choice question that explain the correct response.

The following test fields now feature updated study guides:
