Spanish Skills Placement Test (SSPT).
Community Consolidated School District 54, Des Plaines, IL. Adult Learning Resource Center.
The Spanish Skills Placement Test (SSPT) is the product of a need for a Spanish literacy placement instrument for use with literacy, adult basic education, and pre-General Educational Development program students. The need for the test was expressed by a variety of Illinois literacy organizations and agencies, particularly those in Chicago. The test encompasses a range of competencies from basic letter formation to expository writing. Its construction features a focus on critical competencies in order of complexity, a concise and non-threatening presentation, uncomplicated administration procedures, and a survey of significant skills to facilitate meaningful student grouping. The SSPT was field tested by several Northern Illinois literacy providers and edited by educators participating in a special assessment workshop. The seven-page instrument includes a mathematics section. Administrator's instructions, a list of competencies, and a score sheet are included with the instrument. (LB)
