Ohio Changes Educator Licensure Test Vendors
Beginning Sept. 1, all Ohio pre-service educator licensure candidates taking licensure examinations and all licensed educators pursuing a license in a new area will take the Ohio Assessments for Educators (OAE), a new series of tests developed by Evaluation Systems Group of Pearson. Ohio Assessments for Educators will replace the current Praxis II examinations, except for the world languages exams, which will continue to be provided by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages. Licensure candidates who test before Sept. 1 still will take the Praxis II exams and may use them whenever they apply for Ohio licensure, provided they are passed before Sept. 1.
Two aspects of the OAE series will especially benefit teachers:
The Ohio Assessments for Educators series offers state-of-the-art, computer-based assessments across content levels and grade levels. Licensure candidates can take the tests at more locations and can get quicker results. Th assessments will be available year round by appointment, except for Sundays and certain holidays.
The OAE are based on contemporary standards of teaching and learning, including the Common Core State Standards.
A new OAE website helps licensure candidates determine which tests they may take. The site also includes testing locations, and candidate FAQs and other features.
Field Experience Travel
Driver Responsibilities when Traveling to Field Experience and Professional Internship Sites
Often, teacher education candidates must travel by car to their field experience and
professional internship school sites. Carpooling is encouraged when appropriate.
Candidates need to be aware of driver responsibilities when traveling to these sites.
Specifically, Ohio law requires:
- The driver to have a valid driver’s license
- The driver must be able to show proof of insurance or other financial responsibility coverage
