Overview of Minnesota Testing Requirements

Important Information

As of September 1, 2010, the state of Minnesota requires candidates for educator certification to take the Minnesota Teacher Licensure Examinations (MTLE). If you are a new candidate for educator certification, please visit the Minnesota Board of Teaching (BOT) website for further information. Candidates cannot take the Praxis® tests for Minnesota licensure, and passing scores for tests taken prior to that date are no longer accepted. As of January 1, 2016, only MTLE scores are accepted.
