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 two credits for credit-by-exam.
  2. If you fail the test-out, you must take MTEC-111 in order to graduate.
  3. Only those students who have never taken the MTEC-111 test-out before, and have never taken and received a grade for an MTEC-111 course, are eligible to have their test-out score counted. Only the score of the first test-out attempt counts and all subsequent test-out attempts will not receive scores.
  4. There are 50 multiple-choice questions to attempt within 50 minutes. You must get 40 correct answers to pass, and penalty marks are not deducted for wrong answers. However, the test period system closing trumps the 50 minutes. If the test period closes on Wednesday 2:00 p.m. and you start the attempt at 1:50 p.m., you only have 10 minutes before 2:00 p.m. at which time the system will automatically close and submit the answers you have provided.
  5. Study material to prepare for the test-out is posted on MTEC-111 Web Notes. Please study chapters two through twelve.
  6. To take the test-out, please go to this link:

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 credit-by-exam and dropping of MTEC-111 classes following this test-out.
  8. To access, you must have exercised the option to change your OnePass [login required] password at least once.
