Spanish Reading Comprehension Test and English Reading Comprehension Test (Translated from the Spanish). Administration Manual (Grades 7-12 and Adult).
Moreno, Steve
An administrator's manual and two reading comprehension tests in Spanish and English for use in secondary grades and with adults are presented here. The Spanish reading comprehension test was developed, standardized, and normed in Mexico; the English reading comprehension test was translated from the Spanish test. The tests were designed to be used in the following ways: (1) to determine the level of Spanish achievement compared with Mexican norms; (2) as an evaluation instrument for bilingual education programs; (3) to measure progress of United States students who are studying Spanish; (4) to determine degrees of bilingualism by administering both English and Spanish versions at different times; (5) to measure and report Spanish reading comprehension skills of the students as well as information about English achievement; and (6) as a research tool. In addition to the above information, the manual covers the following topics: (1) the Mexican educational system; (2) suggestions for psychologists and educators; (3) test development; (4) interpretation of the scores; (5) general directions for administration as well as directions for administering both tests; (6) information on Spanish grade equivalents and percentile ranks; and (7) information about English norms, grade level equivalents and percentile ranks.
