Assessing Adventist Academics - A Mid-Point Update on CognitiveGenesis

This article provides an interim overview of results of a 4 year study of academic achievement for grade 3-9 and 11 student attending Adventist schools in North America. Results indicate that "students in NAD schools are both achieving above the national average (by about half a grade level) and higher than would be predicted based on their ability test scores (also about half a grade level).... Some initial preliminary findings, however, are providing support for the relationship between student, home, teacher, and school factors thought to be important for student achievement in NAD schools".
