Summary

The scores of 1,907 entering freshmen on the Survey of Reading Achievement (advanced grades 9-12) were examined in the fall of 1976 at Los Angeles City College. Important findings included: (1) a 10th grade median reading level; (2) slightly better performance by males; (3) an average of 9.5 grade level for first-time enrollees (71%); (4) a performance below the overall average by students who last attended Los Angeles city high schools; (5) variance among Los Angeles high schools ranging from 8th to 12th grade levels; and (6) test scores which resulted in nearly equal divisions of students recommended to English 1, English 60, and Developmental Communications. These classes represent a grade-level division of 11th and above, 9th and 10th, and 8th and below, respectively. Frequency distributions are given by sex and for the total group according to the date the examination was taken, previous colleges attended, geographical location of last high school, individual Los Angeles city high schools, and percentage distribution by grade-level score. Distribution for English placement completes the tabular data, which constitutes the major part of this report. (RT)
