Phoenix Union High School District, AZ. Research Services.
This is a report of the testing results of the 1982-83 Chapter 1 program in the Phoenix Union High School District, Arizona. The average Normal Curve Equivalent (NCE) gains in the District's Chapter 1 Programs showed the students gained more knowledge in each subject than similar students across the nation. However, in some subjects the students this year did not do as well as students last year. The NCE gains in English/writing were lower this year than gains last year. Reading and mathematics NCE gains showed an increase over last year's gains. The average monthly NCE gains in the Continuing Education Center's Chapter 1 Programs showed the students gained more knowledge in all subjects--reading, English/writing, mathematics, and social studies--than similar students across the nation. NCE gains in reading, English/writing, and mathematics were higher this year than last year. Last year's NCE gains in social studies are not available. The average student gained more than 1 month's knowledge for each month in class in all subjects. The Chapter 1 Programs in the private schools showed the students gained more knowledge in each subject than similar students across the nation. (PN)
