Registration for the new elementary education pilot test is now open.
Students can register at http://www.pearsonvue.com/espilot/ILTS2.asp. The exam code is PTIL701.
Each test form will take approximately 120 minutes to complete.
Note: The pilot test will not result in official scores that can be used toward licensure. However, the test is a good practice opportunity, and examinees will receive their choice of a $75 ILTS test fee voucher or a $50 Barnes & Noble eGift Card for each test form completed as instructed. Vouchers may be applied towards future ILTS testing fees. (Please note that ILTS test vouchers cannot be used towards test fees in other testing programs.) Participants may take up to two (2) test forms and can earn up to $150 in test fee vouchers OR up to $100 in Barnes & Noble eGift Cards.
