Aprenda 3 Test Results   |   Aprenda 3 Summary Research Files

At this Web site you will find Aprenda 3 summary reports for schools, school districts, counties and the state for Spanish-speaking English learners (ELs) who were required to take these tests, as well as for Spanish-speaking ELs whose districts tested optionally. Students were tested with the Aprenda 3 Reading, Language, Mathematics, and Spelling tests.

Spanish-speaking ELs were required to take the Aprenda 3 in spring 2006 (grades two through eleven) and spring 2007 (grades five through eleven), and spring 2008 (grades eight through eleven), in addition to taking the California Standards Tests (CSTs) and/or the California Modified Assessment (CMA), if:

  • They had been enrolled in school in the United States fewer than 12 months when the tests were administered, or
  • They were receiving instruction in Spanish regardless of the length of time they had been in school in the United States.

School districts had the option of administering the tests to any Spanish-speaking ELs who were not required to take the Aprenda 3.

Some districts may have administered the Aprenda 3 to students learning Spanish whose first language was English or who were fluent in English. These children were not tested as part of the state’s STAR Program, and test results for them are not included in the summary reports.

The reports available at this Web site include summary data for the state, counties, school districts, and schools for the following subgroups:

  • All Students
  • Gender
  • English Learner 12-Month Status
  • Special Education Services
  • Economic Status
