OR Basic Skills Requirements

Although Oregon does not require a basic skills exam for licensure, you are required to take a basic skills exam to satisfy the WGU Program Requirement. You should sign up to take your basic skills examination when you begin studying Foundations of Teaching to ensure you have time to pass the examination prior to enrollment in Effective Teaching Practices.
