In Oregon, a system of multiple measures is used to determine the status of program completers, who can then be recommended to the Teacher Standards and Practices Commission (TPSC) for licensure. One component of this system requires the educator to pass a basic skills test, subject matter tests, and a civil rights knowledge test. For information on Oregon testing requirements please refer to the Teacher Standards and Practices Commission website.

Because passing tests is required for program completion in Oregon, the state pass rate is 100%. Those who do not pass the required tests are not considered program completers and are not eligible for licensure recommendation.

Library Media Endorsement

The Graduate School of Education offers a graduate-level program leading to a recommendation for a library media endorsement. The Library Media Endorsement Program consists of a comprehensive set of coursework (29 credits) that prepares students to be competent PreK-12 school librarians.
