In 1995, the Oklahoma Commission for Teacher Preparation (OCTP) was given the responsibility by the Oklahoma Legislature to develop and implement a competency-bases assessment system for educator licensure/certification in the state of Oklahoma.
The certification exams are administered twelve times a year through paper-based administrations across the state as well as computer-based administrations available both state and nationwide.
The Oklahoma certification examinations reflect state standards (Oklahoma Full-Subject Matter Competencies, Oklahoma General Competencies, core student standards) as well as current national standards. Over 7000 Oklahoma educators have contributed their knowledge and expertise throughout the assessment development and validation process. Included are classroom teachers, higher education faculty, career technology faculty, and school administrators.
OCTP has compiled an electronic database of CEOE scores for educators and educator candidates for the State of Oklahoma. You may now view your scores online and print an official score report. Click here to set up your account.
As part of maintaining the assessment program, routine review and redevelopment assures that the exams will be kept up-to-date and accurate. Constant monitoring ensures that they also continue to measure educator knowledge and skill levels using the most current and widely accepted psychometric standards.
The OCTP and Evaluation Systems Group of Pearson are seeking Oklahoma educators who wish to participate in test review conferences for newly developed CEOE test fields.
