When the value of the electrode potential is given, do we assume it is given for the electrode reduction potential or oxidation potential?

Normally the electrode potentials are given as standard reduction potentials.

The electrode potential is typically given in reduction potential. You would need to check signs to make sure you balance REDOX reaction correctly based on if the compound is reduced or oxidized.

Typically you would assume it is given for the reduction potential unless otherwise stated.

the reduction potential. Once you determine which half reaction is oxidized, you change the sign of this potential.
