Oregon Teacher Licensure Exam Preparation: Home

Welcome!

This guide is designed to assist students with identifying the appropriate exams, study materials, test taking strategies, and campus resources to pass their required teacher licensure exams.  Students need to begin studying well in advance in order to pass the appropriate content exams for the grades and subjects they plan to teach.


Getting Started

Teacher Licensure Exam Preparation workshops are offered on campus several times each term.  It is recommended that students attend one of these workshops during Freshman year (or as early as possible for transfer students).

Students who did not pass their exams the first time, and would like additional help, can schedule advising appointments for:

  • Reviewing previous test taking experiences, scores, strengths, and weaknesses.
  • Identifying specific content areas and study methods to focus on prior to next exam.
  • Learning new test taking strategies to improve score on next exam.
  • Referrals to FREE on-campus counseling for test anxiety.
