The ICTS Learning Behavior Specialist II: Curriculum Adaptation Specialist Test is used to certify learning behavior specialists in Illinois who focus on curriculum adaptation for students with special needs. There are six constructed-response assignments in the test that focus on three subareas: Foundations, Characteristics, and Assessment; Planning and Delivering Instructional Content and Managing the Learning Environment; and Communication, Collaboration, and Professionalism. Three of the constructed-response questions are stand-alone and the other three are based on case studies.
The subareas of the ICTS Learning Behavior Specialist II: Curriculum Adaptation Specialist Test include 12 general objective statements, each of which includes several detailed descriptive statements. The constructed-response assignments are graded on a four-point scale. Passing the test requires a total scaled score of 240 or above. A score report is mailed to the test takers and the Illinois State Board of Education four weeks after the test date.
