INTRODUCTION

The Pruebas Puertorriqueñas de Aprovechamiento Académico (PPAA) are totally new items
that evaluate the expectations specific to each grade level and the demands of global education.
The revised Content Standards and Grade-Level Expectations are part of a transformation of the
education system.

Purpose

The purpose of this Information Booklet is to familiarize educators, parents, and students in
Puerto Rico with the new PPAA English tests that will be administered beginning April 2009.
The booklet provides helpful explanations and sample test material that will enable
educators, parents, and students to get a comprehensive grasp of the exam (PPAA). This
information will be helpful to school personnel as they work together to integrate the content
standards and grade-level expectations into their daily lesson plans and classroom teaching. Most
importantly, this information booklet will provide educators, parents, and students with
additional insight into the fundamental framework of what is to be taught and learned in the
Puerto Rico school system.

New Content Standards and Expectations

During 2007-2008, the content standards and grade-level expectations established in
2000 were revised through an instructional process in which Puerto Rican teachers and
evaluation specialists worked arduously.
The resulting content standards, as well as the grade-level expectations are an improved
guide to teaching Puerto Rican students in the 21st century and preparing them to be successful
in a competitive global world community. Learning expectations are now defined clearly for
each grade and with rigor. The content standards and grade-level expectations of learning
establish measurable and clear criteria that constitute goals for all students. In brief, the content
standards and grade-level expectations describe what each student should know and be able to
do. It is expected that upon completing the school year, each student will possess the knowledge
and skills identified as important for the grade in which he or she is enrolled.

Rights Reserved Grade 4 English PPAA Information Booklet
The content standards and grade-level expectations are delineated in such a way that they
encourage interrelationships among the curriculum, textbooks and other materials, classroom
instruction, and academic tests that measure progress.

Pruebas Puertorriqueñas de Aprovechamiento Académico (PPAA)

The new PPAA meets the requirements of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB).
These new tests provide educators with a better measure of overall student achievement.
Each test is composed of multiple-choice and constructed-response items. In the past, PPAA
tests were composed exclusively of multiple-choice items.
The new document (Content Standards and Grade-Level Expectations) and test blueprints
are expected to result in an improved alignment, the degree to which assessments of what
students know and can do are in agreement with content standards and grade-level expectations.
Test blueprints (describing what the tests measure) were created to reflect the new
document. Constructed-response test items have been added to the multiple-choice format to
better measure some expectations and student performance.
Puerto Rico is using a model of alignment developed by Norman Webb of the University
of Wisconsin. Test content is being written using three Depth-of-Knowledge (DOK) levels that
are defined by Webb¹:

DOK 1- Recall and Reproduction
DOK 2 - Skills and Concepts/Basic Reasoning
DOK 3 - Strategic Thinking/Complex Reasoning

Consistency between the cognitive demands of content standards and grade-level
expectations and the cognitive demands of the PPAA assessments is emphasized.

ORGANIZATION OF THE INFORMATION BOOKLETS
Each grade within the subject area is presented as a separate Information Booklet to provide
helpful general information, as well as show enough specific sample items and passages in
listening, reading, and writing to give educators a good sense of the English assessment. The
booklet for each grade level contains some information that is unique to the required
expectations of the subject. However, all booklets include the following information, which is
considered critical for all subject-area PPAA tests:

 an overview of the subject within the context of the PPAA
 the reasons the content standards and grade-level expectations are critical to student
learning and success
 the content standards and grade-level expectations that are measured by the PPAA
 sample items that show some of the ways expectations are assessed
 sample constructed-response test items (short-answer) and the scoring rubrics
 additional information to help educators understand how content standards and grade-
level expectations are assessed on the PPAA

It is recommended that you read and study the booklets for a grade above and a grade
below the grade you are teaching. For example, seventh-grade English teachers should review
the sixth-grade Information Booklet as well as the eighth-grade Information Booklet. You will be
able to develop a broader perspective of the English assessment than if you study only the
seventh-grade Information Booklet.

Overview of the English as a Second Language PPAA

Objective of the English PPAA Information Booklet

The objective of this Information Booklet is to assist educators in understanding the new
English Prueba Puertorriqueña de Approbechamiento Académico (PPAA) designed to measure
Puerto Rico’s revised content standards and grade-level expectations for English language
learners (ELLs) in grades 3-8 and 11. The booklet describes the layout of the listening, reading,
and writing sections of the English PPAA for grade 4 and provides sample test selections and
items.

General Information Regarding the English PPAA

The Puerto Rico Department of Education (PRDE) developed the PPAA to fulfill the
requirements of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB). NCLB mandates that the
academic progress of ELLs in grades 3-8 and one high school grade be evaluated through a state-
administered measure of English language proficiency in listening, reading, and writing. The
English PPAA developed to measure Puerto Rico’s new content standards and grade-level
expectations will be administered beginning in April 2009.
The English PPAA is comprised of the following:
• ELLs in grades 3-8 and 11 are assessed in the areas of listening, reading, and writing
using a multiple-choice format. The reading section of the test also includes new
constructed-response items that require students to answer open-ended questions in their
own words.
The goal of the English PPAA is to assist schools in helping ELLs to acquire English language
proficiency.
Facets of the listening/speaking expectations that are concerned with speaking English
are not measured by the written PPAA. Speaking can only be assessed by evaluating the actual
oral communication of the individual student.

Rights Reserved Grade 4 English PPAA Information Booklet
The Test Development Process

The PRDE directly involved educators and test experts throughout the English PPAA
development process. Committees of Puerto Rican educators help create listening, reading, and
writing selections and test items. In addition, large-scale field tests are conducted.
Committees of educators review new items before field testing.
In order to replenish the PPAA item banks, committees of Puerto Rican educators
annually hold review sessions before field-testing to provide feedback on newly created items.

Test Results

The English PPAA results include individual proficiency-level ratings for each of the
listening, reading, and writing domains assessed. These results are used to determine if the
NCLB annual measurable achievement objectives have been met.

English PPAA Assessment Model

The English PPAA is designed to measure student performance at the grade level
assessed. For example, an English PPAA grade 4 reading selection is written at a difficulty level
appropriate for ELLs who are in the spring of their fourth-grade year. Student performance is
linked to the grade-level expectations outlined in the English content standards.

Test Administration

The English PPAA test administration manual includes information to help test
administrators and students understand the structure and purpose of the test. Students are
informed that they will encounter questions with varying levels of difficulty depending on how
much English they know. They are encouraged to do their best and choose the answers they
think are correct.

Test Content

This section contains sample listening, reading, and writing test selections and items
aligned with the content standard and grade-level expectations they are designed to measure.
Multiple-choice and constructed response items are written at various Depth-of-Knowledge
(DOK) levels.

A Trip to the Desert

1 Today, Juana and Eva are at the Guánica Forest. They have come on a school bus
with their teacher.
2 “What is that?” Juana asks as she gets off of the bus. She points at a green plant with
needles sticking out all over it.

4 “I thought cactuses only grew in the desert,” Eva says.
5 “Deserts are dry and ugly places, aren’t they?” Juana adds.
6 “That’s not completely true, girls. This small part of Puerto Rico is like the desert,”
the teacher tells her. “That cactus plant may not look as beautiful as orchid plants. In the
spring, though, it will have red and yellow flowers all over it. Then it will be very
beautiful.”

That Hanger in Your Closet

1 You probably use a coat hanger when you put your coat in the closet. Did you ever
wonder where they came from? A hundred years ago, people hung their coats on wooden
pegs.

2 One day a man named Albert Parkhouse could not find a place to hang his coat.
All the pegs had been used. He bent a piece of wire so it would fit his coat. Then he put a
hook on the end and created the hanger. It worked! So he made hangers for all the other
workers.

3 Later, the company he worked for started making the coat hangers. Soon everyone
was using them for coats, shirts, and other clothes. Later on, people put rods across the
closet for the hangers. We can thank Albert Parkhouse every time we hang up our clothes.
