The Spanish Language CLEP exam will measure the student’s proficiency in Spanish reading and listening comprehension as would be expected after two to four semesters in college study. The exam will test knowledge gained from the end of the first year of study to the end of the second; therefore, both year 1 and year 2 are combined into the one exam.
The exam contains approximately 120 questions to be answered in approximately 90 minutes. Some of these are pretest questions that will not be scored. There are three separately timed sections. The three sections are weighted so that each question contributes equally to the total score. The College Board provides the parameters for the exam which we have listed below.
The exam has two Listening sections and one Reading section. All sections are timed.
*Cloze refers to a test of reading comprehension that involves the test taker supplying words which have been purposefully deleted from the written passage.
Each college sets their own credit-granting policies for the exam, so check with your college admissions office, test center, or academic adviser before taking the test.
