How the Exam is Scored

The OAE Mathematics test is scored by taking the sum of your correct answers and converting them to a scaled score that takes test difficulty into account.

There is no penalty for incorrect answers on this exam.

Passing Score

To pass the OAE Math (027) exam, you must receive a scaled score of at least 220.

When Will You Get Your Score Report

Visit the OAE website to find out what day your Math (027) scores will be posted. (Scroll down to “Score Reporting.”) Scores will be viewable on your account starting at 10 p.m. (ET) on the listed date. You will also receive the report via email if you selected this option at registration.

Since results are posted in batches, you may wait anywhere from around 12 days to around six weeks to get your scores. The wait time depends on whether you took your test early or late in the exam cycle.

Understanding Your Score Report

Your OAE Math (027) score report will show your Assessment Score and your Performance Indices. The first section provides your overall score on a scale of 100 to 300, with 220 being the minimum score to pass. The second section reveals how you performed in each content domain, as represented by a +, ++, +++, or ++++ (respectively: well below passing, just below passing, at or above passing, well above passing).

If you did not pass the exam, you should find this score report helpful for future studying. By reviewing your performance within each content domain, you can identify the areas where you need the most work.

Retaking the Exam

If you don’t pass the OAE Mathematics exam on your first try, you are allowed to retake it as many times as you wish. However, you must wait 30 days between each attempt.

Conclusion:

OAE Mathematics (027) test scores play a key role in determining your eligibility to teach upper-level math in Ohio. Understanding how this test is scored and what is required to pass should help you prepare more effectively, maximizing your chances of success.

If you don’t pass the OAE Math (027) exam on your first try, remember to take advantage of the detailed performance breakdown on your score report. This is an invaluable tool for identifying areas where you need improvement.

Even if your first try was unsuccessful, you should feel confident that you can pass the OAE Math (027) test. With diligent study and a clear understanding of the exam, you’ll be well prepared for your next attempt.
