In this annual summary of achievement data for Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Title I programs in New York State for the 1975-1976 school year, the three priority areas designated for instruction by the Board of Regents were reading, mathematics, and bilingual education. The last area was subsequently interpreted to consist of (1) oral fluency and aural comprehension in English by speakers of other languages, and (2) visual literacy in English reading and visual literacy in Spanish for Hispanic Americans. Superimposed across all projects employing norm referenced tests was the question: Did each treatment group demonstrate achievement beyond expectation (based upon the pupil's own past performances)? Overall, the data indicated that as a result of this program in excess of 100,000 Upstate and 180,000 New York City children who were consistently meeting failure in the basic skills areas were diminishing the distance between themselves and the norms by which they were being judged.
