5 Field-Specific Information Test Subareas and Objectives Practice Test Questions Explanation of the Test Score Report INTRODUCTION The content tests are designed to assess a candidate's knowledge of content in the specific teaching, school service personnel, or administrative field in which licensure is sought. The tests are based on current and relevant expectations for teacher preparation students and for teachers in Illinois as defined by the Illinois Content Area Standards for Educators. This study guide is designed to focus your preparation by helping you become familiar with the format and content to be covered on the tests. This section includes a list of the test subareas and objectives, practice test questions for the field covered by this study guide, an answer key, and an explanation of the test score report. TEST SUBAREAS AND OBJECTIVES The content covered by the test is organized into subareas. You will find a list of subareas at the beginning of the list of test objectives. Within each subarea, the content is further defined by a set of objectives. Each objective comprises two major parts: 1. the objective statement, which broadly defines the knowledge and skills that an entry-level educator needs to know; and 2. the descriptive statements, which describe in greater detail the types of knowledge and skills covered by the test objective. The test objectives are broad, conceptual, and meaningful statements, written in language that reflects the skills, knowledge, and understanding that an entry-level teacher needs in order to teach effectively in an Illinois classroom. A test consists of test questions that measure an examinee's mastery of these test objectives. Below is an example of a test objective statement and its accompanying descriptive statements for the Elementary/Middle Grades test. Objective Statement Understand word analysis strategies and vocabulary development and how to use effective, developmentally appropriate approaches to promote students' word analysis and vocabulary skills. Illinois Licensure Testing System Study Guide Music 2-1

6 Descriptive Statements Demonstrate knowledge of phonics and its role in decoding; of ways to assess students' phonic skills; and of effective instructional strategies, activities, and materials for promoting students' phonetic analysis skills. Demonstrate knowledge of word analysis strategies, including syllabication, morphology (e.g., use of affixes and roots), and context clues; of ways to assess students' use of word analysis strategies; and of effective instructional strategies, activities, and materials for promoting students' word analysis and contextual analysis skills. Demonstrate knowledge of the role of vocabulary development in reading; of ways to assess students' vocabulary development; and of effective instructional strategies, activities, and materials for promoting students' vocabulary development. PRACTICE TEST QUESTIONS The practice test questions included in this section are designed to give the examinee an introduction to the nature of the test questions included on the ILTS test for each field. The practice test questions represent the various types of test questions you may expect to see on an actual test; however, they are not designed to provide diagnostic information to help you identify specific areas of individual strengths and weaknesses or predict your performance on the test as a whole. Use the answer key located after the practice test questions to check your answers. To help you identify which test objective is being assessed, the objective statement to which the question corresponds is listed in the answer key. When you are finished with the practice test questions, you may wish to go back and review the entire list of test objectives and descriptive statements once again. 2-2 Illinois Licensure Testing System Study Guide Music

21 EXPLANATION OF THE TEST SCORE REPORT OVERVIEW The score report indicates whether or not you passed the test and how you performed on each test subarea. The passing scores for the Illinois Licensure Testing System were established by the Illinois State Board of Education based on recommendations from panels of Illinois educators. The passing score for each content-area test is designed to reflect the level of content knowledge and skills required to perform the job of an educator receiving an initial license in Illinois. Passing Score To pass a content-area test you must obtain a scaled total test score of 240 or above. Total Test Score The total test score is based on your performance on the entire test, specifically the number of multiple-choice questions you answered correctly. Subarea Scores Subarea scores are presented on the same scale as the total test score. Subarea scores contain different numbers of questions and are weighted differently in the computation of the total test score; therefore, the average of the subarea scaled scores generally will not equal the scaled total test score. Subarea scores will help you assess your areas of relative strength and weakness. Reporting of Scores Your results will be forwarded to the Illinois State Board of Education and to the Illinois institution(s) you indicate during the registration process. You should keep the score report you receive for your own records. Illinois Licensure Testing System Study Guide Music 2-17

22 READING YOUR REPORT: A SAMPLE A sample of a Music test score report is provided below. Test: 143 Music Your Scaled Total Test Score: 234 Number of Test Items in Subarea 21 to to to to to 20 Subarea Name 2 Listening Skills Music Theory Creating and Performing Music Music History and Culture Music Education Scaled Total Test Score Subarea Score Your Status: Did not pass 1 Performance Graph According to the above sample, the examinee did not pass the Music test, because the examinee's total test score of 234 is below the passing score of 240. The examinee did better on the Creating and Performing Music section of the test than on the Listening Skills section. The examinee will need to retake the test and achieve a total test score of 240 or higher to pass the test. The score report indicates the number of items for each subarea on the test Illinois Licensure Testing System Study Guide Music
