MTEC-111 Introduction to Music Technology: Online Test-Out

  1. If you pass this test-out, we will notify the registrar to drop you from MTEC-111 and give you credit-by-exam.
  2. If you fail the test-out, you must take MTEC-111 in order to graduate.
  3. Your test-out score will count only if you have never taken the MTEC-111 test-out before and have never taken and received a grade for an MTEC-111 course. Only the score of your first test-out attempt counts. All subsequent test-out attempts will receive a score of zero.
  4. There are 50 multiple-choice questions to attempt within 50 minutes, and you must get 40 correct answers to pass. Penalty marks are not deducted for wrong answers. Please note that the test period closing time trumps the 50 minutes. If the test period closes on Wednesday at 2:00 p.m. and you start the attempt at 1:50 p.m., you will only have 10 minutes to answer questions before 2:00 p.m., at which time the system will automatically close and submit the answers that you have provided.
  5. Study material to prepare for the test-out is posted on MTEC-111 Web Notes. Please study chapters two–12.

There will be another test in January for students entering Berklee in the spring.
  7. Test results will be reviewed, and you will be notified by email on Thursday, September 1, 2016. On that date—and not before—the registrar will process student record updates for dropping MTEC-111 classes and the awarding of credit-by-exam following this test-out.
