APPROPRIATE LEVELS OF THE METROPOLITAN READING TEST WERE ADMINISTERED CITYWIDE IN OCTOBER, 1965, AND MAY, 1966, TO PUPILS IN GRADES 2 THROUGH 9 IN AN EFFORT BY THE NEW YORK SCHOOL SYSTEM TO IMPROVE READING. THE RESULTS ARE PRESENTED IN TABLES WHICH SHOW THE DISTRIBUTION OF READING ACHIEVEMENT SCORES IN EACH GRADE. THE IOWA TESTS OF BASIC SKILLS IN THREE AREAS - LANGUAGE SKILLS, WORK-STUDY SKILLS, AND ARITHMETIC SKILLS - WERE ADMINISTERED CITYWIDE ONCE DURING THE SCHOOL YEAR 1965-66 TO GRADES 4, 5, AND 6.
