This report describes the construction of a preliminary form of a test for use with individuals whose native language is Spanish. The test is designed to measure their ability to understand spoken English. It is planned to use this test in conjunction with other tests as a screening instrument for determining whether Puerto Rican inductees should undergo English training, or whether their English fluency is adequate for assignment to basic military training in English-speaking units without additional English training. Sufficient English fluency is defined as the amount necessary to meet the individuals military and social needs.
