Regents: lectura y redacción de textos


Explanation:
Regents parece ser lectura y composición escrita en inglés; quizá se te ocurra laguna palabra que defina este concepto mejor. Te envío la webbie en que lo encontré.
No he enconrtado nada sobre Modified; quizá alguien que se haya educado en países de habla inglesa lo sepa.
¡Yo seguiré intentándolo!

Explanation:
Hace 50 años y más tuve una maestra que hablaba de "Regents", se trataba de un examen bien difícil que había que aprobar para poder recibir el bachillerato (High School Diploma) en el estado de Nueva York (no sé más, no soy de allá). Por lo tanto, busca en Internet "Regents Examination New York", etc. "Modified"... ¿quién sabe? Tal vez sea del mismo estado.

examen de los Regentes


Explanation:
Henry is right that is does refer to a test (which is what your context refers to, "Regents Achievement Test"). It apparently refers to a test given by the Board of Regents in each state to certify home education:

Students instructed at home are not awarded a high school diploma. A high school diploma may only be awarded to a student enrolled in a registered secondary school who has completed all program requirements set by the Regents, the school or the district(http://www.emsc.nysed.gov/rscs/nonpub/home_instruction.html)

Here is a text in Spanish with much more information.

Nivel 4
(678-810)
Estos estudiantes sobrepasan las normas y se encaminan hacia un alto aprovechamiento en el examen de
los Regentes. Ellos demuestran conocimiento y destrezas superiores en cada una de las normas para estudiantes
en el nivel elemental y buen dominio y destrezas para cada una de las ideas fundamentales para estudiantes en el
nivel intermedio. Ellos trabajan con decimales y usan por cientos. Miden longitud, área y volumen. Aplican
conceptos de probabilidad. Analizan situaciones, explican razonamientos y llegan a conclusiones.

"Modified" probably refers to another test ("examen modificado"), or another version of the Regents test ("examen modificado de los Regentes").
