Comprehensive Assessment of Executive Function
and Instructional Implications
In this session we will focus on a comprehensive way to assess the concept of Executive Function (EF). We will begin with a short review of the concept and conclude with a view of EF supported by research data from two large nationally representative samples used to norm the Comprehensive Executive Function Inventory (CEFI) and CEFI-Adult. The session will then cover how EF is expressed by measures of intelligence (especially the Cognitive Assessment System Second Edition), rating scales of behaviors, social-emotional competency (e.g. DESSA), and academic achievement (e.g., FAR and FAM) for typical and clinical groups. Emphasis will be placed on interventions that have been shown to increase use of EF and the resulting impact on academic scores.
