About the OAE and PRAXIS Assessments?

Praxis and Ohio Assessments for Educators (OAE) tests measure teacher candidate's knowledge and skills. Candidates seeking Ohio licensure and certifications must pass certain assessments, based upon their area of study in the pre-kindergarten through grade 12 system. 

The Curriculum Resource Center, located on the second floor of Jerome Library, has resources to help Ohio teacher candidates prepare for Praxis and OAE assessments. 

To learn more about teacher educator expectations at BGSU, visit the Teacher Education Program website. 

To learn more about teacher educator licensure requirements in Ohio, visit the Ohio Department of Education.
