Cognitive and behavioral rating measures of executive function as predictors of academic outcomes in children

Learning Objectives:

1. Explain the relation between measures of executive function assessed in different ways (cognitively, behaviorally) and their relative predictive utility for reading comprehension and mathematical calculations in 4th and 5th grade students.
2. Describe the role of different processes of executive function (working memory, inhibition, shifting, and planning) for reading comprehension and mathematical calculations in 4th and 5th grade students.
