The ICTS Learning Behavior Specialist II: Behavior Intervention Specialist Test is given to certify learning behavior specialists who focus on behavior intervention in Illinois. The test consists of six constructed-response assignments. Three of the assignments are based on case studies and the other three are stand-alone assignments. The information included in the test is divided into three main subareas: Foundations, Characteristics, and Assessment; Planning and Delivering Instruction and Managing the Learning Environment; and Communication, Collaboration, and Professionalism.
There are 13 general objective statements in the subareas and these are accompanied by specialized descriptive statements. Each constructed-response question is scored on a scale of one to four. The test scorers evaluate one's understanding of the material, the supporting details, and the strength of argument when grading the ICTS Learning Behavior Specialist II: Behavior Intervention Specialist Test. A total scaled score of 240 or higher is required to pass the test.
