This is a test I give during the first week of school to my SECOND year Spanish for heritage / native speakers class to gauge where they are at. It helps me understand where they are at with regard to reading comprehension, paraphrasing, vocabulary development, and summary writing. The second part of the handout is a pretest where they write a 5 paragraph essay about the same topic, in their own lives. The text is a non-fiction news article (the link is at the beginning of the handout).
**Updated 8/16 - I beefed up the reading section and added the writing section. (Please note - I would definitely give the reading and writing sections on different days.)
