OH Master of Arts in Mathematics Education Certification and Exam Requirements - Direct Pathway

LICENSE AND EXAM REQUIREMENTS

 

In Ohio, WGU's Master of Arts in Mathematics Education (Middle Grades) program leads to an endorsement in Middle Childhood Mathematics Grades 4-9. Note: Effective 7/1/2019, any student applying for a Middle Childhood license must be eligibile for licensing in two content areas in order for the license to be issued.


In Ohio, WGU's Master of Arts in Mathematics Education (Secondary) program leads to an endorsement in Integrated Mathematics, Grades 7-12

Educators holding current Ohio teaching licenses can add endorsements to their licenses in additional teaching areas by completing a state-approved teacher preparation program in the new teaching area and passing the Praxis content exam required by the Ohio Department of Education for that content area.

Ohio requires the passing of content exam(s) and a professional knowledge (pedagogy) exam for licensure. As a student completing a program outside of Ohio, the Ohio Department of Education will accept content exam(s) required for certification in WGU's home-state of Utah or content exam(s) required for certification in Ohio. Since Utah does not require a professional knowledge (pedagogy) exam for initial licensure, you will need to pass an Ohio Assessments for Educators (OAE) pedagogy exam to license in Ohio.
