The ICTS Special Education General Curriculum Test was created according to the guidelines of the Content Area Standards for Educators, and the Illinois State Board of Education uses it to certify special education instructors. It is a criterion-referenced, objective-based test of 65 multiple-choice questions that are completely devoted to educational development in children. The ICTS Special Education General Curriculum Test has four main subareas: Reading and Literacy; Mathematics; Natural Sciences; and Social Sciences.
There are 18 general objective statements included in the four main subareas of the ICTS Special Education General Curriculum Test. The objective statements contain in-depth descriptive statements that measure one's ability to identify and demonstrate the knowledge in class. The state of Illinois requires a total score of 240 or higher to pass the exam. Scores are mailed four weeks after the ICTS Special Education General Curriculum Test date. Total scores and scores for each subarea are included in the report.
