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.

Question 5 of 10
Read the excerpt below, from the poem "Nuyorican Lament" by Gloria Vando; then answer the question that follows. San Juan you're not for me. My cadence quails and stumbles on your ancient stones: there is an inner beat here to be reckoned with— a seis chorreao, a plena, an inbred @Oyeeee! and @mira tú! against which my Manhattan (sorry wrong island) responses fell flat. @Vaya! How can I deal with that? And yet . . . once, long ago, your beach was mine; Luquillo was my bridle path to ride— back then, before the turning of the tide when Teddy's blue-eyed shills secured the hill and tried in vain to blot the language out. . .

Nyame the Sky God called together all the nobles of his court and addressed them in a loud voice: "Little Ananse, the spider man, has paid me the price I ask for my stories. Sing his praise. I command you." "From this day and going on forever," proclaimed the Sky God, "my stories belong to Ananse and shall be called 'Spider Stories.'

Question 9 of 10
Read the excerpt below from Rebecca Harding Davis's Life in the Iron Mills; then answer the three questions that follow. A cloudy day: do you know what that is in a town of iron-works? The sky sank down before dawn, muddy, flat, immovable. The air is thick, clammy with the breath of crowded human beings. It stifles me. I open the window, and, looking out, can scarcely see through the rain the grocer's shop opposite, where a crowd of drunken workers are puffing Lynchburg tobacco in their pipes. I can detect the scent through all the foul smells ranging loose in the air. . .
Can you see how foggy the day is? As I stand here, idly tapping the window-pane, and looking out through the rain at the dirty back-yard and the coalboats below, fragments of an old story float up before me,—a story of this old house into which I happened to come to-day. You may think it a tiresome story enough, as foggy as the day, sharpened by no sudden flashes of pain or pleasure.—I know: only the outline of a dull life, that long since, with thousands of dull lives like its own, was vainly lived and lost: thousands of them,—massed, vile, slimy lives, like those of the torpid lizards in yonder stagnant water-butt.—Lost? There is a curious point for you to settle, my friend, who study psychology in a lazy, dilettante way. Stop a moment. I am going to be honest. This is what I want you to do. I want you to hide your disgust, take no heed to your clean clothes,and come right down with me,—here, into the thickest of the fog and mud and foul effluvia. I want you to hear this story. There is a secret down there, in this nightmare fog, that has lain dumb for centuries. This passage best exemplifies which of the following types of fiction?CorrectIncorrect
Question 10 of 10
