The Massachusetts Tests for Educator Licensure (MTEL) are administered to individuals seeking professional accreditation in the state of Massachusetts. Anyone seeking employment as a teacher, teaching assistant, or other educator is required to pass one or more MTEL assessments. These examinations are aligned with the Massachusetts Vocational Technical Education Regulations, Massachusetts licensure regulations, and the student standards for Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks and the Adult Basic Education Curriculum Frameworks. The MTEL Communication and Literacy Skills Test focuses on reading and writing. It includes multiple-choice, short-answer items (mainly focusing on sentence revision), and two open-response assignments.

The open-response assignments require the student to summarize a written passage and compose a brief essay. Many prospective teachers in the state of Massachusetts are required to take the Communication and Literary Skills Test along with a subject matter test in their areas of expertise.
