One of the promising results from the Year 2 report of Think Small’s Pathways to Quality (P2Q) project stemmed from a small pilot measuring children’s executive functions using the Minnesota Executive Function Scale (MEFS). Executive functioning represents a broad set of skills that enable individuals to meet adaptive goals. These skills are necessary for academic success. To be successful academically, children must be able to do things like concentrate, follow directions from teachers, get along with other children, and control their impulses.
