Pupil Reading Achievement in New York City. A Report of the April 1974 Reading Test Survey, Grades 2 Through 9, New York City Public Schools.
Colligan, Jerome H.; And Others
This report contains a tabular summary of the results of the April 1974 city-wide reading test administered in Grades 2 through 9 in all New York City public schools. Test results are presented at three levels for comparative analysis: New York City with other major cities, community school districts within N.Y.C., and community schools within districts. Test results data are presented in arithmetic means, medians, and percentages allowing for varied means of analysis. Results indicate that citywide averages improved from 1973 to 1974 in Grades 3 and 7 and declined in Grade 9. The remaining five grades remained at the same level. Citywide percentages of pupils reading at or above grade level decreased two-tenths of one percent. Taking into account the reading achievement statistics for the city as a whole and for its component community school districts, the report concludes that there has been a high degree of stability in reading achievement over the past four years.
