Study Guides & Practice Tests

Although each state has its own standards and test structure for teacher certification, many of the certification tests use the same test bank of questions. This makes the study guides and practice tests below a useful resource to test your knowledge. Please keep in mind that the ICTS study guide is the only resource for Illinois test standards and structure.
