    Abstract

    How well do executive function tests and questionnaires predict school performance in healthy adolescents? This was investigated in 173 healthy adolescents aged 12-­18 years who study at pre-university education level (in Dutch: vwo). Executive functions were measured with the D-­KEFS subtests Sorting Test and Tower Test, and with the BRIEF-­SR. School performance was measured with end of term grades for Dutch, English and mathematics.
