Smarter Balanced Mathematics and Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) Assessments: Guidelines for Spanish Read Aloud of Stimuli and Items
Students who are advancing toward English language proficiency, including identified English learners/multilingual learners (ELs/MLs) whose native language is Spanish, may benefit from using reader supports. When a student cannot access the embedded text-to-speech, the student may be eligible to work with a test reader in an individualized test setting to receive this support in Spanish.
This resource was developed for those Spanish-speaking students who benefit from having the test read aloud directly by a trained and qualified teacher in Spanish, available only on the Smarter Balanced Mathematics and NGSS Assessments. Teachers providing this designated support should review and follow the steps outlined in the Guidelines for Spanish Read Aloud, Test Reader.
