Oral English Proficiency Test

The Oral English Proficiency Test (OEPT) is a computer-based test used by the OEPP to screen prospective teaching assistants for language proficiency. Candidates respond to a variety of questions, present information and speak extemporaneously on various topics. The responses are recorded and evaluated by at least two trained raters. A score of 50 or higher is required for certification.

Examinees will use BoilerKey to log on to the OEPT test.
