Welcome to the results Web site for California's Designated Primary Language Test (DPLT), a component of the state's Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) Program. This Web site provides access to school, school district, county, and state summary data for Spanish-speaking English learners (ELs) in grades two through eleven who were tested with a norm-referenced achievement test in Spanish between spring 1999 and spring 2008. Between spring 1999 and spring 2005, California administered the Spanish Assessment of Basic Education, 2nd Edition (SABE/2) published by CTB/McGraw-Hill. At its July 2005 meeting, the State Board of Education (SBE) designated the Aprenda: La prueba de logros en español, Tercera edición (Aprenda 3) for use in the STAR Program. The Aprenda 3 is published by Pearson/Harcourt Assessment, Inc. In spring 2006, the Aprenda 3 was administered to Spanish speaking ELs in grades two through eleven. In spring 2007, with the development and administration of the Standards-based Tests in Spanish (STS) for grades two through four, the Aprenda 3 was administered in grades five through eleven. In spring 2008, the Aprenda 3 was administered in grades eight through eleven. For further information on the STS, go to About STAR 2008.

The SABE/2 and the Aprenda 3 are both multiple-choice tests that require students to select the correct answer from among four or five answer choices. Information about the subjects tested and the groups for which summary reports are available are included in the introductory information for each test series.
