Massachusetts Tests for Educator Licensure

College students taking test in classroom

Summary:

Victory is a subcontractor in a five-year project to write, edit, and QC test items for the Massachusetts teacher licensure examination. We also research passages and create final art. In Year 1, Victory’s social studies and ELA content developers selected topics aligned to the Massachusetts Social Studies and ELA Objective standards, writing multiple-choice items for the state’s licensure examination. The items evaluate content knowledge for both world history and United States history and English.
