Adventist Forum presents Cognitive Genesis:  The Impact of Adventist
K-12 Schools on Students.  The discussion is led by Jerome Thayer,
Ph.D., on Sabbath, September 22, 2012, at 3:30 p.m., in the Garber
Amphitheater of Chan Shun Hall on the campus of Andrews University.
All are welcome to join in the discussion.

About the Topic
Seventh-day Adventist educators have long maintained that their
students achievement test scores (Iowa Test of Basic Skills scores),
pass rates, and college matriculation percentages consistently outpace
most public school and even other private school systems.

Cognitive Genesis is the first division-wide (United States, Canada, and
Bermuda) study to assess Adventist academics in elementary and secondary
schools.

Working together with the North American Division and the Unions
involved, the Cognitive Genesis Project at La Sierra University gathered
information from surveys of teachers, administrators, students, and
parents about factors that are related to academic achievement,
including uniquely Adventist ones. These survey responses along with the
standardized test results for students in Grades 3-9 and 11  provide the
basis for establishing an accurate documented picture of elementary and
secondary Adventist academic achievement.

Adventist Forum is open to the public.  All are welcome.  For
information, contact Art Robertson at robertsa2@earthlink.net or call
