The PEERS High School Assessment

     The PEERS Test is the only professionally validated test of the worldview of individuals in the areas of Politics, Economics, Education, Religion, and Social Issues. The PEERS Test reveals a decline in high school and college students over the past several decades who are equipped to hold and articulate a Biblical view in these critical areas that effect our nation’s future. This downward trend has caused Dan to become an ardent advocate for Christian education. However going forward, the test has helped many parents and educators receive a vision for a truly Christ-centered education. In addition, PEERS testing for the past three decades validates Principle Approach education as that which most successfully produces a Biblical worldview in students. 

Below is a graph showing the alarming decline of a Biblical worldview in Christian High School Jr.'s and Sr.'s.  In fact, the majority of them according to this test have a completely secular worldview, including those from traditional Christian schools.  Pupils who have learned the Principle Approach method are scoring in the Biblical Theism range.  The PEERS test is an important tool to assess teachers, and high school pupils that gives objective feedback regarding their worldview.  This test can be taken by anyone.  For more information about PEERS testing visit NehemiahInstitute.com
