  • Diagram the structure of a chloroplast
  • Explain the purposes of the chlorophyll, stroma, thylakoid, and grana in a chloroplast
  • Illustrate the make-up of a plant cell
  • Discuss the roles of the cell wall and central vacuole in a plant cell
  • Describe the process of photosynthesis

Our trained educators know how to make learning seemingly difficult subjects like plant cells seem like a breeze. Become familiar with key terms and concepts and then test yourself with our sample OAE Biology exam questions.

OAE Biology: Plant Cells Chapter Objectives

Passing the Ohio Assessments for Educators (OAE) is a prerequisite for teaching licensure in the state of Ohio. Those who pass the OAE Biology exam are cleared to teach life science classes to 7th graders and older. In order to earn a passing score, one must earn a 220 on a scale of 100 to 300. The test is three hours long and consists of 150 multiple-choice, stand-alone questions.

The OAE Biology exam consists of five domains, including one focused on biological unity and diversity. This segment of the OAE Biology exam features questions about plant cells which this study guide is designed to help you with. Twenty percent of the questions on the exam are in this domain. The test is computer-based and made up of only stand-alone, multiple-choice questions. Questions are derived from a set of standards for secondary teachers decided on by the Ohio's New Learning Standards.
