P.C.E.N. Math Skills Program, Student Outcome Data 1990-91.
New York City Board of Education, Brooklyn, NY. Div. of Strategic Planning/Research and Development.
The New York City Public Schools Office of Research, Evaluation, and Assessment annually evaluates the PCEN Math Skills Program. Evaluation objectives were devised to avoid additional testing by using tests already in place in the High School Testing Program as evaluation instruments. Objectives are that at least 50 percent of full-year program participants will show a normal curve equivalent gain of at least 1 unit between the pretest and the posttest on the Mathematics Achievement Test or the Regents Competency Test, and that at least 60 percent of students in Model B and Model D mathematics classes will pass the course. Student outcomes, which include percentages improving and passing the courses, are presented for sites without specifying the class model, and by superintendency with the model specified. The superintendencies are Manhattan, the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Queens and the superintendencies designated "Basis" and "Alternative." Test results are presented in 414 pages of tables. (SLD)
