The Role of Partnership Research in Evidence-Based Decision-Making

Featuring

Jelena Obradović, Assistant Professor of Education

Ritu Khanna, SFUSD Chief of Research, Planning & Assessment

Students’ ability to focus their attention, ignore distractions, control their behavior—known as Executive Functions (EFs)—has been linked to school readiness and academic achievement. These skills are malleable and can be improved. Yet we know very little about how classroom context affects the development of EF skills in children beyond kindergarten. In partnership with San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD) and other school districts, our study demonstrates a novel, scalable method for directly assessing students’ EFs in a classroom setting, advances our understanding of how classroom context can foster these important cognitive skills, and reveals the importance of EFs for academic achievement in middle childhood.
