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.

The Curriculum Resource Center has print copies of OAE study guides available to borrow for seven days. These are located in the CRC near the Information and Lending Desk and may be checked out and returned at the main circulation desk on the first floor. You will need a photo ID for check out. To ensure that these are readily available to others, they are not renewable and must now be in a three-day quarantine once returned and before they can be checked out by others. These are heavily used so please plan ahead.
If you would like to purchase your own copy of an OAE Study Guide, visit the Mometrix website. They are available in print or as e-books.
