Educator Licensure


The State Board of Education, in consultation with the State Teacher Certification Board, may make available a nationally normed, performance-based assessment of whether candidates' induction to the professional of teaching has advanced their command of appropriate teaching practices and strategies and contributed to the professional judgment required for designing educational experiences to meet the diverse needs of students.

The assessment is not available at this time.

If the assessment is made available, the State Board must notify all Illinois school districts and other entities that employ teachers, all Illinois institutions of higher education that prepare educational personnel, and the teachers' professional associations or unions. The notice must identify the exam, its cost, and the schedule for the first year of administration and indicate where you can obtain information about the exam.
