The Comprehensive Executive Function Inventory (CEFI ) is a behavior rating scale designed to evaluate goal-directed behaviors controlled by executive function in youth aged 5 18 years. The CEFI can be used to guide assessment, diagnosis, and treatment planning. The CEFI is also useful in a variety of research contexts and can be used as an effective tool to evaluate the success of an intervention program.
The CEFI s reliability and validity data indicate it has strong psychometric qualities. With 100 items on a Likert-type scale 90 are distributed among the CEFI Scales and 10 on the Positive and Negative Impression Scales the CEFI offers Parent, Teacher, and Self- Report (12 to 18 years) Forms, allowing for a multi-rater perspective of a youth s executive function.
Intended for use by professionals such as psychologists, school psychologists, clinical social workers, physicians, counselors, psychiatric workers, and pediatric/psychiatric nurses, the CEFI is an effective and reliable tool for evaluating executive function.
The CEFI was developed to measure a wide spectrum of behaviors associated with executive function. In addition to a Full Scale score, calculated by adding responses to 90 of the items, the CEFI utilizes nine scales (Attention, Emotion Regulation, Flexibility, Inhibitory Control, Initiation, Organization, Planning, Self-Monitoring, and Working Memory) to pinpoint targets for intervention.
Data were collected from each U.S. Census Region. For the Parent and Teacher Forms, ages of the rated youth ranged from 5 18 years. For the Self-Report Form, youth aged 12 18 years rated themselves. At each year of age, 50 males and 50 females were collected for each form, resulting in 1,400 rated youth (age M=11.5, SD=4.0) for the parent and teacher normative samples and 700 youth for the self-report (age M=15.0, SD=2.0). Samples were stratified to match the Census on Race/Ethnicity (White, Black, Hispanic/Latino, Asian, and Other), Region, and Parental Education Level (PEL, collected for Parent and Self-Report Forms).
