In Illinois, the ICTS Learning Behavior Specialist II: Transition Specialist Test is used to certify learning behavior specialists who concentrate on transitioning students. There are three stand-alone constructed-response assignments and three case study constructed-response assignments. There are three subareas of information in the test: Foundations, Characteristics, and Assessment; Planning and Delivering Instructional Content and Managing the Learning Environment; and Maintaining Effective Communication, Collaboration, and Professionalism.
The combined subareas of information include 12 general objective statements, which contain detailed descriptive statements. The ICTS Learning Behavior Specialist II: Transition Specialist Test requires a total scaled score of 240 or above to pass. Each constructed-response assignment is graded on a scale of one to four and scaled to the total score. Score reports are sent out four weeks after the test.
