Escondido Spanish Immersion:
Aprenda 3 Background Information
Aprenda® is designed to guide teaching and learning to help ensure that Spanish-speaking students in grades K-12 meet the same challenging academic standards that all students are expected to meet. Teachers can gain valuable information about the progress students are making in their classrooms. Parents will learn what their children know and can do and how they can help.
Aprenda®: La prueba de logros en español, Tercera edición (Aprenda 3) measures the academic achievement of Spanish-speaking students in their native language. It is modeled after its companion English-language test, the Stanford Achievement Test Series, Tenth Edition (Stanford 10). Aprenda® 3 was developed with Latino educators and is a high quality, culturally inclusive Spanish-language test of academic standards.
