New York City Board of Education, Brooklyn, NY. Div. of Strategic Planning/Research and Development.
The Office of Research, Evaluation, and Assessment of the New York City Public Schools evaluates the Chapter 1 Math Skills program annually. Objectives, which were set by the Division of High Schools, are that at least 50 percent of full-year program participants will demonstrate a normal curve equivalent (NCE) gain of at least 1 unit as measured by a comparison of pretest and posttest scores on the Mathematics Achievement Test or the Regents' Competency Test. It is hoped that at least 60 percent of participants in Model B or Model D mathematics classes will pass the course. Student outcomes, which include percentages improving and passing the course, are presented for the superintendencies of Manhattan, Brooklyn, the Bronx, and Queens, as well as the superintendencies labeled"Basis" and "Alternative." Outcomes are given for sites by status, by superintendency, and by superintendency with the class model designated. Results are presented in 442 pages of tables. (SLD)
