The Michigan Test for Teacher Certification (MTTC) program is the only group of tests that satisfy the testing requirement for teacher certification in Michigan at this time. The purpose of the tests is to ensure that each certified teacher has the necessary basic skills and content knowledge to serve in Michigan schools.

The MTTC tests are criterion-referenced multiple-choice that are designed to measure a candidate’s knowledge and skills in relation to an established standard of performance (a criterion) rather than in relation to the perform­ance of other candidates.

The MTTC program currently consists of subject-area tests, including the world language tests, and a Professional Readiness Examination. The subject-area tests comprise multiple-choice questions, except for the world language tests, which comprise both multiple-choice questions and two or more constructed-response assignments. The Professional Readiness Examination includes multiple-choice questions in the Reading and Mathematics subtests and multiple-choice questions and two constructed-response assignments in the Writing subtest. Each MTTC test has a paper-based test and a computer-based test. Testing time, fees and number of questions varies.
