On Nov. 7 & 9, students in all levels of Spanish are taking a diagnostic test in listening skills. The tests are weighted in difficulty - students who have not had much background in Spanish are not expected to understand everything. This test will not be counted in the students' grades. A second test will be given in May to measure how students' listening skills have improved - that test will count as a grade.
