It has been a requirement since 2006 that ALL elementary and ALL history secondary education majors pass the IL History Test; this information was included in the syllabi of both HI 121 and HI 122. If you were in those classes, then you were told about this requirement. However, for those candidates who transferred American History credit in (either from High School AP credits or other college coursework), this may be the first time you are hearing about this requirement. As of Fall 2009 as part of the Division of Education, a passing score on this test will be a prerequisite for both ED 343 and ED 363. IF YOU'VE ALREADY PASSED THE IL HISTORY COMPETENCY TEST, THEN DISREGARD THIS MESSAGE. If you have not already taken and passed the IL History Competency Test, then you will have 3 opportunities to take it this semester. Passing this test is a requirement for Education Majors. You are able to re-take this test until you attain a passing score (75% or above). There is a STUDY GUIDE to this test. The dates for the Fall 2012 Semester are: (Location is MCL 112) · Wednesday, September 19th, 2012 from 4:30-5:30 · Wednesday, October 17th, 2012 from 4:30-5:30 · Wednesday, November 14th, 2012 from 4:30-5:30. Please sign-up in the Division of Education Offices.
All students should register for their Spring 2013 courses online beginning the week of November 12. Information will be provided to students by the University Records office regarding when their registration window opens and at which point they can register.
