Executive Function in Preschool Children: Test-Retest Reliability
Beck, Danielle M.; Schaefer, Catherine; Pang, Karen; Carlson, Stephanie M.
Journal of Cognition and Development, v12 n2 p169-193 2011
Research suggests that executive function (EF) may distinguish between children who are well- or ill-prepared for kindergarten; however, little is known about the test-retest reliability of measures of EF for children. We aimed to establish a battery of EF measures that are sensitive to both development and individual differences across the preschool period using Conflict and Delay subtests that had a cool (abstract) or hot (extrinsic reward) focus. Results from 151 children in three age groups (2.5, 3.5, and 4.5 years) suggested acceptable same-day test-retest reliability on all but Delay-Cool subtasks. These findings will inform appropriate measurement selection and development for future studies. (Contains 2 tables and 2 figures.)
