Natalia Józefacka Szram

Abstract—The study show connections between educational achievements and efficiency of basic components of executive functions (EF) understoodas short-term memory, inhibition control and set shifting. Particular research topics are concentrated in development of executive functions issue in view of age (5-, 6 years old). Study based on two groups of children from preschool class (N = 96) and first grade (N = 97), both levelled in terms of gender. This project takes into consideration relationship between EF – school achievements, controlling socio-economical status and age. Confirmatory variation analysis indicates good correlation of all investigated factors. In the second step, execution of Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) confirms that all three EF factors have significant influence on school achievements, also assumption about age finds confirmation in the data. Hypothesis about influence of sex and SES on school achievement was found insignificant.

Index Terms—Executive functions, inhibition, school achievement, switching working memory.
