Examinees who had not passed all subtests of the current assessment prior to the transition can complete each assessment requirement by combining a Pass status on one or more subtests of the current MTLE test (e.g., 024 Elementary Education (Grades K-6) Subtest 1 and 026 Elementary Education (Grades K-6) Subtest 3) with a Pass status on the other subtest(s) of the redeveloped MTLE test (e.g., 192 Elementary Education (Grades K-6) Subtest 2). Examinees may be responsible for submitting a copy of their score report(s) with their license application.
