From Education Week:

Last month, the Illinois State Board of Education adopted rules to allow unlimited attempts to pass a basic skills exam for educators, which includes reading, writing, and math tests. In January 2010, the Board overturned previous rules that allowed unlimited attempts, instead only allowing five tries to pass each portion of the exam. After deciding to limit test attempts to five, the Board of Education changed their mind and decided to return to allowing unlimited testing. The rule has to be reviewed by a legislative committee and should go into effect in April or May if there are no objections.
