Hints will display for most wrong answers; explanations for most right answers.   You can attempt a question multiple times; it will only be scored correct if you get it right the first time.  To see a new question, reload the page.

I used the official objectives and sample test to construct these questions, but cannot promise that they accurately reflect what’s on the real test.   Some of the sample questions were more convoluted than I could bear to write.   See terms of use.   See the MTEL Practice Test main page to view questions on a particular topic or to download paper practice tests.

Question 1

Use the graph below to answer the question that follows.


Which of the following is a correct equation for the graph of the line depicted above?

\( \large y=-\dfrac{1}{2}x+2\)
The slope is -1/2 and the y-intercept is 2. You can also try just plugging in points. For example, this is the only choice that gives y=1 when x=2.
\( \large 4x=2y\)
This line goes through (0,0); the graph above does not.
\( \large y=x+2\)
The line pictured has negative slope.
\( \large y=-x+2\)
Try plugging x=4 into this equation and see if that point is on the graph above.
