Effective September 1st, 2013, the reading tests are Pearson's Reading subtest I/038 and Reading subtest II/039.  Both passing scores are 220.   There is more information about all Ohio Assessments for Educators via:

A website with specific information about the reading subtests can be found at: 
Upon completion of coursework and passing the exams, candidates submit an application to the State to receive the endorsement.  Be sure to have your exam results sent to UT as well as the Ohio Department of Education (ODE) so that our “e-signer” will receive notification of your results and verify to ODE that you have completed all the requirements for the endorsement.

Many students choose to pair a certificate with a degree program, discuss all of your options with your academic adviser.
