The ICTS Physically Handicapped Test must be passed to remove a Learning Behavior Specialist I (LBS I) Limitation and assist physically handicapped students. It is a content-area test with 125 multiple-choice questions created according to the rules of the Content Area Standards for Educators in Illinois. The test covers five subareas: Human Development and Students with Special Educational Needs; Characteristics of Physical Disabilities and Health Impairments; Assessment; Program Development and Instruction; and Professional Knowledge and Legal Issues.
The five subareas of the exam include 46 objective statements containing specific descriptive statements that focus on the skills needed to understand and apply content knowledge within legal parameters. Passing the ICTS Physically Handicapped Test requires a total score of 240 or above of a possible 300 points. Scores are mailed to the test takers and the Illinois State Board of Education four weeks after the test is taken.
