The Spanish Syllable Sounds Measure
• Measures students' ability to recognize and produce common
syllable sounds
• All Spanish-speaking students participate in the assessment,
with accommodations if determined to be necessary for equal
access for that individual student
• Students are shown syllable combinations in a chart
• This is a 60 second timed assessment
• Students have 60 seconds to produce as many of the
corresponding syllable sounds as they can

Spanish Syllable Sounds—Scoring
If student:
• is correct, do not mark the letter and count as correct
• clearly loses his/her place, point to the next syllable
• self corrects, write SC above the syllable and count as correct
• says incorrect syllable sound, slash through the syllable, and count
as incorrect
• hesitates more than 3 seconds, slash through the syllable, supply
the syllable sound and count as incorrect
• skips syllable, circle the syllable and count as incorrect
• Record number of correct syllable sounds in # correct at bottom of
assessor copy
• Record number of attempts, correct or incorrect, in # attempted

•

“La siguiente”
“Está bien si tratas de adivinar”

Additional Considerations for Spanish Syllable
Sounds
• If student does not identify a syllable sound in the first row, move to
second row.
• If the student still does not identify a syllable sound in the second
row, the timed fluency assessment can be discontinued. The score
will be 0.
• At this point, it is best practice to ask the student if he/she
recognizes any syllables on the page (remove the guide if used).
While this does not contribute to the score, it is still valuable
information.
• It is important for the student to feel successful. If the student does
not identify any syllable sounds, the assessor can provide support by
pointing out syllables and offering the sound.
