Test Frameworks for Illinois Certification Tests
In June 2000, the State Board of Education adopted content-area standards for educators. The test frameworks illustrate the alignment of these standards with the Illinois Certification Testing System's (ICTS) certification tests. The frameworks provide a set of objectives upon which the tests are based and also represent the content knowledge that is assessed on the Illinois Certification tests. These frameworks are helpful for teacher certification candidates and also faculty members who are involved in the preparation of teacher certification candidates.
