The IDEA Oral Language Proficiency Test II was designed to determine the level of Spanish oral language proficiency for native Spanish-speaking students in grades 7-12 who are enrolled in schools in the United States as well as for students of Spanish as a foreign language. It will also 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 some items, and examinees move through a series of levels until their level of proficiency ceiling has been reached. The examiner marks each item either Correct or Incorrect, but responses to items are allowed to vary. Information about test development, reliability, and validity are not part of the EAC East collection.
