Trinity Celebrates 100% Exam Pass Rate for Masters SPED Program


Sara BailleTrinity is proud to announce a 100% pass rate for all graduating students from our Master of Arts in Special Education program on the Learning Behavior Specialist II Behavior Intervention Specialist Exam. By passing the exam, each student’s teaching license will include the Behavior Intervention Specialist Endorsement.  

“Not only did all of our graduating students from the first cohort pass the exam, but each student passed it after taking it for the first time,” said Professor Sara Baille, assistant professor of special education. “It’s a great honor for the students and Trinity and worth celebrating.”

Trinity’s Master of Arts in Special Education program was launched in fall 2014, and is the only special education master’s degree program in Illinois to combine the LBS II Behavior Intervention Specialist endorsement with the ability to take the Board Certified Behavior Analyst Examination (BCBA) after graduation. The students from the first cohort are graduating this April and will spend the summer preparing to take the BCBA exam in the fall.
