Objectives of the Ohio APK Multi-Age: Language, Behavioral & Physical Development Chapter
Passing the Ohio APK Multi-Age exam is one of the requirements for certain teaching licenses in this state. The exam is segmented into three domains, and the questions on the topics in this chapter are in the Student Development and Learning domain, which accounts for 24% of the exam's total score.
