PCEN Math Skills Program Student Outcome Data 1988-89 End-of-Year Report. Evaluation Section Report.
Mei, Dolores M.; And Others
This report details the overall results for the Pupils With Compensatory Education Needs (PCEN) program, results by superintendency for 1988-89, and school-by-school summary statistics in math and attendance. The PCEN funded Math Skills Program provides remediation in mathematics to eligible high school students. Students enrolled in the Math Skills program receive a full year of instruction or a single term depending on the extent of their skills deficiency. Two instructional approaches are used to teach remedial mathematics. The primary goal of the PCEN program is that 70 percent of the students receiving remediation in math evidence improvement in their math test scores from the pretest to the posttest. The results show that the program objective was not met by half-year students or by full-year students. (KR)
