Spanish Proficiency or Placement Test:  Novice-High
I developed this assessment as a tool for gathering data as to student's proficiency levels during their second and third years of language study in Spanish. This assessment is directly aligned with the ACTFL progress indicators for Novice-High fluency. This assessment addresses all skill areas; Interpersonal Speaking, Presentational Speaking, Presentational Writing, Interpretive Listening, and Interpretive Reading.

This assessment can be used in a variety of ways:
1. As an exit test or final exam for Spanish 2
2. As an entrance exam for Spanish 3
3. As a placement exam for students newly entering your language program from private or out of state institutions
4. As a progress indicator given to students at the beginning, middle, and end of the school year to demonstrate growth
5. As smaller, individual assessments given throughout the course of the school year
