Educator Performance

In order to improve the quality of teacher preparation programs in Ohio, the state of Ohio requires all teacher education students to take standardized tests prior to receiving teaching licensure. (see Ohio Revised Code 3333.048)

The purpose of the tests and the reports which follow are to inform the public about the quality of teacher preparation and, ultimately, to improve the quality of teaching.

We ask that Bluffton candidates take specialty test(s) prior to clinical practice so we can be confident that they know the content. They must pass the test of pedagogy and content tests before receiving their Ohio teaching licenses. Our policy is to work with students who are having difficulty until they have success or choose to stop trying to pass the test.
