Research by our amazing Dr. Stacey Neuharth-Pritchett

Students who attend the Georgia Prekindergarten Program are more likely to achieve mathematically in the classroom than those who do not attend pre-K, according to a new study by the University of Georgia. 📚

In the first longitudinal study to follow Georgia pre-K students through middle school, Stacey Neuharth-Pritchett, #MFECOE associate dean for academic programs and professor, found that participating in pre-K programs positively predicted mathematical achievement in students through seventh grade.

“Students who participated in the study were twice as likely to meet the state standards in their mathematics achievement,” said Neuharth-Pritchett. “School becomes more challenging as one progresses through the grades, and so if in middle school, students are still twice as likely to meet the state standards, it's clear that something that happened early on was influencing their trajectory.”

Please join us! There will be a light reception following the talk.

Creative Thinking: Processes, Strategies, Skills and Errors

It has long been held the production of solutions to problems calling for creative thinking calls for the execution of multiple cognitive processing operations. In this talk Dr. Michael Mumford will review the evidence accrued for one model of creative thinking processes. The role of expertise in process execution will be examined along with the specific strategies that give rise to more effective process execution. The key skills contributing to effective execution of these processes will be described along with the errors that act to undermine effective process execution. The implications of these observations for the development and assessment of creative potential will be discussed.
