The IDEA Oral Language Proficiency Test I was designed to determine the level of Spanish oral language proficiency of native Spanish-speaking students enrolled in grades K-6 in the United States, as well as students of Spanish as a foreign language. It will provide the information necessary to classify these students as Non-, Limited, or Fluent Spanish-Speaking as well as provide diagnostic information for instruction. The test has six domains: Syntax, Morphological Structure, Lexical Items, Phonological Structure, Comprehension, and Oral Production. Most test items involve several of these domains concurrently, rather than having separate sections for each domain. Picture cards in an easel-style book accompany most items, and examinees move through a series of levels until proficiency ceiling has been reached. The examiner marks each item either Correct or Incorrect, but responses to items are allowed to vary. Average test time is 14 minutes. Information about reliability, validity, and test development is not part of the EAC East collection.
