New York State Pupil Evaluation Program. School Administrator's Manual.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of Pupil Testing and Advisory Services.
The Pupil Evaluation Program is a fall testing program required of all pupils in grades 3, 6, and 9 in the public and nonpublic schools of New York State. The program was originally established to provide information vital to the efficient management of ESEA Title I funds. It now provides an annual Statewide school-by-school inventory of pupil achievement in reading and mathematics. The test results identify, objectively and reliably, educational needs and indicate progress in meeting these needs irrespective of whether the funds originate from a local, state, or national source. This manual describes the tests and the general procedures for their administration, and discusses the interpretation of scores using the test results. (Author)
