Educator License Exams

As part of the licensing process, educators must pass licensure exams.

Important

Beginning Sept. 1, 2013, a new test series (Ohio Assessments for Educators), began to replace the Praxis II series as the required Ohio educator licensure tests, except for world languages.

Test Series

The new Ohio Assessments for Educators (OAE) are provided by the Evaluation Systems Group of Pearson, and measure professional, pedagogical and subject-specific knowledge and skills.

The Praxis SeriesTM  is provided by Educational Testing Service and includes Praxis II, which measures professional, pedagogical and subject-specific knowledge and skills. 

The ACTFL/LTI examinations provide a system of assessing and ensuring the spoken and written language proficiency of candidates for licensure to teach world languages.
