The Office of Research, Evaluation, and Assessment of the New York City public schools annually evaluates the AIDP English Instructional Services (EIS) program in reading and writing. Tests already in place in the High School Testing program are used as evaluation instruments. Program objectives include normal curve equivalent (NCE) gains of at least 1 full unit for 50 percent of full-year participants in grades 9 through 12 in reading. It is hoped that at least 70 percent of participants will demonstrate improvement in writing skills and at least 60 percent of participants in Model B or Model D English classes will pass the course. Results are given for the superintendencies of Manhattan, the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Queens and for the superintendencies labeled "Basis" and"Alternative." Outcomes, which include percentages improving in reading, are listed by school, for the superintendency by status, and for the superintendency by program model. The results are presented in 114 pages of tables. (SLD)
