STUDYING FOR THE COMMUNICATION AND LITERACY SKILLS TESTThere is no one correct way to study for the Communication and Literacy Skills Test. Some test-takers prefer to set aside a few hours every morning to study, while others prefer to study at night before going to sleep.Only you can determine when and where your study time will be most effective. To help you budget your time, refer to the study schedule which appears at the end of this chapter. When taking the practice tests you should try to duplicate the actual testing conditions as closely as possible.
It will be helpful to time yourself when you take the practice tests so you will have a better idea of how much time to spend on each section of the actual exam. A quiet, well-lit room, free from such distractions as the television or radio, is preferable.As you complete each practice test, thoroughly review the explanations. Keep track of the number of correct answers you receive on each test so you can gauge your progress accurately, and develop a clear sense of where you need improvement. HOW TO USE THIS BOOKWhen should I start studying?An eight-week study schedule is provided in this text to assist you in preparing for the exam. If your test date is only four weeks away, you can halve the time allotted to each section; keep in mind, however, that this is not the most effective way to study.
If you have several months before your test date, you may wish to extend the time allotted to each section.


Remember, the more time you spend studying, the better your chances of achieving your aim—a passing score on the MTEL.
Your total score will derive from a combination of all test sections.According to administrators of the MTEL, the reading subtest of the Communication and Literacy Skills Test contains approximately 30 multiple-choice items and six open-response items, while the writing subtest contains approximately 14 multiple-choice items and six to nine open-response items. Our practice tests approximate the number of questions you will encounter on the actual exam. It is safe to assume, however, that a score of 70 percent on each section equates with a passing score.
It may be helpful to have a friend or colleague score your practice test essays, since you will benefit from his or her ability to be more objective in judging the clarity and organization If you do not achieve a passing score on your first practice test, don’t worry. Review those sections with which you have had the most difficulty, and try the second practice test and later, the third test. TEST-TAKING TIPSAlthough you may have taken standardized tests like the Communication and Literacy Skills Test before, it is crucial that you become familiar with the format and content of each section of this exam.
The Communication and Literacy Skills Test covers a great deal of information, and the more comfortable you are with the format, the more confidence you will have when you take the actual exam.
You need more time to compose a clear, concise, well-constructed essay than you need to answer a multiple-choice question, so don’t spend too much time on any one item.
If you feel that you are spending too much time on any one question, mark the answer choice that you think is most likely the correct one, circle the item number in your test booklet, and return to it if time allows.
The multiple-choice sections of the test are graded by a computer, which has no sympathy for clerical errors.
