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

  1. If you pass this test-out, we will notify the registrar to give you two credits by exam and drop you from MTEC-111. You can then sign up for another course during the add/drop period.
  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 take the test-out. The test-out is on a once-a-lifetime basis for each eligible student. Only the score of the first attempt counts. All subsequent 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. Penalty marks are not deducted for wrong answers. However, the test period 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. 
Once time is up, the test will close and automatically 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 12.
  6. To take the test-out, please go to this link:
    The link will be open only during the next designated test period, which is from Saturday, May 14, 2016, at 9:00 a.m. to Wednesday, May 18, 2016, at 2:00 p.m. This test is for students entering Berklee in the summer. There will be another test in September for students entering Berklee in the fall.
  7. Test results will be reviewed and you will be notified by email on Thursday, May 19, 2016. On that date—and not before—the registrar will process student record updates for credits-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 password at least once. Students entering Berklee in the summer should have been notified of their OnePass password already. Students entering Berklee in the fall will need to wait for their OnePass password.
  9. If you have any questions, please email Joe Lynn at
