SUPERA, the Spanish-language version of our comprehensive TerraNova assessment series, allows educators to get a clear picture of Spanish-speaking students' achievement relative to their English-speaking peers.

SUPERA offers three editions that assess Reading/Language Arts and Mathematics:

  • Evaluaciones múltiples (Multiple Assessments), featuring both selected-response and constructed-response test items
  • Evaluaciones enciales (Survey), an abbreviated version of SUPERA, featuring only selected-response test items
  • Evaluaciones desarrolladas a su preferencia (Custom Assessments), designed to meet the unique needs of your school or district

In addition, the SUPERA Plus test can be added to either Multiple Assessments or Survey to assess Word Analysis, Vocabulary, Language Mechanics, Spelling, and Mathematics Computation.
