What kinds of test items are available on the Spanish Reading test, and what dialect is used?

The pool of Spanish Reading items is made up of both items that are trans-adapted from our English item pool and newly created authentic Spanish items. Transadapted items have been translated and checked for cultural bias. The new authentic Spanish items have been developed to address the assessable skills that are unique or different in Spanish, as well as skills that are shared with English.

What dialect is used?
We used a generic, standard variety of Spanish that is not specific to any one dialect. We avoid words or phrases that are dialect specific.
