What Tests Do I Need to Take?
After preservice preparation and/or receiving a transitional license, every educator must meet the standards for an initial license, which authorizes the educator to work with a specific authorization level in the Oregon school system. Under Oregon laws, an educator must hold the appropriate Oregon license prior to beginning employment in a public school or Education Service District.
Passing the appropriate licensure tests is one requirement for licensure in Oregon. Prospective teachers should review the Oregon Teacher Standards and Practices Commission's website, www.oregon.gov/TSPC , for the complete list of tests required for licensure.
