How does Vista Level Spanish Work?

Vista Level Spanish connects standards-based data to instruction. It helps you identify literacy gaps based on your student’s mastery of the standards, supports ongoing differentiated instruction, and allows you to track individualized student progress.

The Standards

Not all students learn at the same rate. How does a teacher measure progress throughout the year and differentiate instruction to meet student needs and help them master the standards?

Spanish Language Arts standards

Vista Level Spanish starts with Spanish Language Arts standards.

Standard Progression

Vista Level Spanish takes each standard and splits it into smaller strands and progression levels. This results in very actionable teaching points.

Standards Progress

Vista Level Spanish pairs these actionable standards with text complexity across several levels in the Fountas & Pinnell Text Level Gradient ™. Standards correlations are also available for specific state standards.

The Assessments

Assessments provide the data teachers need to track student progress and support instruction.

Assessment Types

Vista Level Spanish currently offers Language, Reading Comprehension and Fluency (running record) and Interpersonal Oral Assessments. Each question is written to assess a student’s mastery of a specific standard and sub-strand. This detailed data helps teachers plan instruction.
*Writing offering will also be available in Spring 2023.

Teacher Assessment Chart

Language and Reading Comprehension assessments are all auto-graded to save teacher’s time. Once students submit the assessment, the teacher’s dashboard will change color to reflect student’s mastery of different levels and different areas.

The Data

Vista Level Spanish connects data to instruction and practice. Color-coded graphs tell teachers about students’ progress towards mastering the standards.

Purple means Not Mastered. Green means Mastered. This way, teachers can quickly see where students did well on the standards within each level and where they are struggling, so they can plan instruction around a particular skill.

Data-driven Instruction and Practice

With the data, you can readily identify your student's literacy gaps. Our learning modules then help you to connect that data to standards-based instruction and practice that meets each student's needs. Our learning resources support differentiation through whole class and small group instruction as well as individual practice.
