Provisional Waiver for the Constitution Test Requirements.
Regional Offices of Education and local adult education programs offering the U.S. and Illinois State Constitution and Flag Test (“Constitution Test”) are also eligible to resume testing, following the ICCB guidelines for safely reopening available here.
If you are a test taker needing to complete the Constitution Test, please contact your local Regional Office of Education for information about testing in your region. Cook County residents can find information on taking the Constitution Test in the Cook County region on the Cook County website.
During the period of time in which testing for the Constitution Test may be limited, the ICCB has extended its provisional waiver of the Constitution Test requirement. Test takers who have already completed and passed their GED®, HiSET®, or TASC™ exam, but are unable to complete the Constitution Test requirement, may request a copy of the provisional waiver from their Regional Office of Education through September 2020. After receiving a provisional waiver, high school equivalency candidates have through December 2020 to complete the Constitution Test requirement and receive their Illinois High School Equivalency Certificate. Candidates are strongly encouraged to complete the Constitution Test requirement as soon as possible in order to obtain their Illinois High School Equivalency Certificate.
