Pupil Reading Achievement: A Summary of the June 1979 Citywide Reading Test Results, Grades 2 through 9.
New York City Board of Education, Brooklyn, NY. Office of Educational Evaluation.
This is a report on the results of the Citywide Reading Test administered in June, 1979, in the elementary, intermediate and junior high schools of New York City. The testing instruments used were the California Achievement Tests. Section A of this report presents information on pupil performance for the school system as a whole. Section B contains data on pupil performance in each of 31 districts. Section C presents, by district, information on the performance of pupils in each school. In each section the following data are presented: the mean score for pupils in each grade, the median score for pupils in each grade, and the percentages of students with scores at different performance levels. The percentage of students excused from the test because of limited English proficiency is also reported. Analysis of the data shows that the performance of pupils in the 1979 Citywide Test can best be characterized as very similar to, but slightly lower than, the performance of pupils nationwide on the same tests. Compared with the results of citywide testing in 1978, the 1979 grade equivalent scores were slightly higher. (Author/MK)
