Learning A–Z Spanish Text Leveling System
The proprietary Learning A–Z Spanish Text Leveling System was built upon the qualitative and quantitative measures of the original Learning A–Z Text Leveling System. The Spanish Text Leveling System takes into account the unique features of Spanish-language texts such as sentence length, complexity of words, and syntax, as well as typical text structures. After careful analysis, the leveling criteria were adjusted and modified from English in order to create accurate levels for students learning to read in Spanish.
Spanish Level Correlations
The Spanish levels from aa to Z2 take into account the same stages of development that Learning A–Z levels do in English. The Spanish levels also correlate to age and grade in the same way. This means, for example, that levels K to P are equivalent to grade 2 reading levels in both the Spanish and English leveling systems.
Spanish Leveled Books
Learning A–Z offers both translated and authentic Spanish Leveled Books. All authentic or original Spanish Leveled Books are assigned a level using the Spanish Text Leveling System following the same strenuous review process used for leveling English texts. Spanish Translated Leveled Books include the accurate Spanish level and the corresponding English book’s level. Some Spanish Translated Leveled Book levels may differ slightly from the English level. Because Learning A–Z’s translations mirror the content and structure of the original text while reflecting the natural flow of the target language and incorporating developmentally appropriate sentence structure and vocabulary, a Spanish translation’s final level will be accurate for students learning to read in Spanish.
