The Office of Research, Evaluation, and Assessment of the New York City Public Schools annually evaluates the PCEN English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) program. Tests already in place in the High School Testing program are used as evaluation instruments. Objectives are that at least 50 percent of program participants will show a positive difference between their pretest normal curve equivalent (NCE) score and their posttest NCE score on the English version of the Language Assessment Battery, and that at least 50 percent of students for whom no 1990 scores exist will show a similar gain between fall 1990 and spring 1991. Student outcomes are presented by school within the superintendencies of Manhattan, the Bronx, Queens, and Brooklyn and for the superintendencies designated "Basis" and "Alternative." Outcomes are also presented by superintendency and program model. The results are presented in 249 pages of tables. (SLD)
