Testing and Education Reference Center (TERC) Guide

When you use this database on an ON CAMPUS you will just click the link for the Testing and Education Reference Center (link also located on the OE library “Databases” page) and then create/login to your personal account. 

When you use the TERC database when you are OFF CAMPUS you’ll need to login TWICE. First you’ll login with the OE school password- included in PASSWORD link below. You’ll need the school password to open the PASSWORDS page.  If you don’t remember it, email me, smcnerneyoe@olatheschools.org  Click here for a video demonstration of the passwords page.

PASSWORDS FOR ALL ELECTRONIC RESOURCES

After logging into TERC with your school database password you will create/login to your own personalized account with the Login/New User Signup button.
