Question
Does NWEA provide any tests or resources in Spanish or Arabic?

Answer
Yes, NWEA provides MAP Growth Spanish Math tests and Spanish Reading tests. We also provide Spanish and Arabic language translations of some user resources in the MAP Help Center.

 
Spanish math tests:

What grades are available?
Tests are available for K-2, 2-5, and 6+ grade bands.

What standards are the tests aligned to?
The Spanish math tests are available aligned to Common Core, California, Texas, Michigan, or Florida state standards.

Are Spanish and English language math tests comparable? Are norms available?
Yes, Spanish math tests are on the same RIT scale as English language math tests. The NWEA norms studies apply to Spanish math tests, and scores taken in the Spanish and English language versions are comparable. If a student takes a Spanish math test and an English math test in the same test window, the test with the lower standard error will be the one reported and used for growth projections.

Which reports show Spanish math test results?
Spanish math tests show on all MAP Growth reports, the same as the English math test. See MAP Reports Summary in the MAP Help Center.

 
Spanish Reading tests:

What grades are available?
Tests are available for the K-2, 2-5, and 6+ grade bands. The 6+ test is currently only intended for students in grades 6-8.

What standards are the tests aligned to?
Tests are aligned for Texas, California, Florida and Common Core standards. If you are in a state that doesn't use one of these standards, the Spanish reading tests are currently aligned to a generic standard set.

Are norms available?
Yes, Spanish reading tests have "user norms" that provide percentiles and growth projections. The available grades and terms are limited. See Which grades, subjects, and terms have status norms and growth norms?

Which reports show Spanish reading test results?
All existing MAP Growth reports except the Projected Proficiency report. See MAP Reports Summary in the MAP Help Center. Additionally, Spanish Reading will be treated as a separate subject; students taking both English and Spanish reading assessments will have two separate growth events.

Are Lexile scores available?
Not at this time. We are exploring adding Spanish Lexile for a future release.

Is the learning continuum available for Spanish reading?
Yes. The learning constructs of Spanish and English reading are different, so Spanish tests have their own learning continuum report. The learning continuum is in English.
