Score Verification

Hola everybody!

First off, best of luck to everyone on this exam!

I'm posting to see if anyone has had any luck on a score verification request for this exam?

I just received my scores and scored a 239

1 point away from passing. My dilemma is whether or not to request a score verification (that only verifies the written and speaker portion of this exam) or, to sign up for the next exam that is offered in September.

I've called the ETS customer service line and was told that the exam would be verified by an entirely different department.

So I'm wondering if I could get that 1 extra point to pass this exam through the verification process..... I've read earlier posts from other members who've said they have had scores verified but to no benefit.

What do y'all think?

I know of one case in which score verification resulted in a change in score - and that was a case with demonstrable testing irregularities. You're better off putting the time, money, and effort into figuring out what you needed to have done more strongly.

Hugs, Spain2013, but I'm not surprised.

Does your score report break down the test into domains? I know that many states test (and their score reports break down into) reading, writing, listening, and speaking separately, along with a cultural/historical component.

Welcome to A to Z, Mexico13.

First things first: we don't share actual specific test questions on A to Z. See the WARNING at the top of each page in the Examinations for Teachers forum, and be aware that it's just as true for ETS (which administers the TExES exams) as it is for Pearson (which bought out NES Inc. and administers teacher tests in a number of states). The test companies do have rules against sharing specific questions, and they can and do monitor sites like this to ensure compliance.

The free online preparation manual for the TExES LOTE Spanish lays out the structure of the test and outlines the competencies (skills and knowledge) that the test covers. The various states' LOTE exams look at language production and comprehension, of course - but they also tend to test one's knowledge of general linguistics, of the linguistics of the target language, and of the history and the cultures associated with the language.

Testing this weekend!

I am going to be taking the Spanish LOTE 613 for the 3rd time this weekend and have been working hard to get that passing score! Wish me luck!

My area of struggle is the lesson plan and opinion/position essay portion! The portion of the test that I have the most trouble with is in all in English! Imagine that...

I guess I'm leaving out some major parts or not using the correct terms for my lesson plan. Or maybe I'm being too detailed? The time thing freaks me out. I usually don't have enough time to be specific... or do I not have to be? Any suggestions as to where I need to focus my time when writing this lesson plan? I've failed the test by 4-10 points each time, with the majority of my points being lost in this section.

Also, does structure matter? Do I have to include the portion of the lesson plan that is given to me or do I just finish out what they left blank?

Subject: Blah blah blah
Grade Level: Blah blah blah
Vocabulary:
Materials:
Assessment:

I may be overthinking this portion but I can't seem to get this part down. Please help! What am I doing wrong?! Is there something specific that they are looking for?! Any advice would help. Thanks.

I plan on taking the Spanish LOTE after I graduate in May this year. I'm kind of (aka REALLY) glad I found this thread!

I do have one question, and it's sort of random and/or odd; I know that there is a word minimum for the essay and the response. Is there a word-counter? Or do you just guess how many words you've written?
