Select the type of program that best describes your class instruction, not the school as a whole. You will see four choices:
- Dual language two way (Lenguaje dual bidireccional) - Speakers of English and Spanish developing both languages in conjunction: Spanish speakers and English speakers are taught together in both languages. Use the drop-down list to choose the percentage of Spanish versus English instruction in your classroom; for example, 90/10 means 90% of the instruction is given in Spanish, while 10% is given in English.
- Dual language one way (Lenguaje dual unidireccional) - Mainly Spanish-dominant speakers developing English and Spanish: Spanish speakers are taught separately in both Spanish and English. Use the drop-down list to choose the percentage of Spanish versus English instruction in your classroom (such as 90/10 if 90% of the instruction is in Spanish).
- Transitional bilingual (Bilingüe de transición): Instruction is given in both languages initially, with more and more of the instruction being in English over time.
- Custom (Personalizado): If none of the options describe your program, select Custom, then enter a brief description of your program type.
After choosing an option, select Submit at the bottom of the window.
If you select Ask Me Later, note that you can't use Star CBM Lectura with the class until you have selected a program type. To make the selection later, click Select Program Type again on the CBM Spanish Assessments tab.
Once you've chosen a program, you can change it later if necessary; simply select the change link at the bottom of the page under the table.
