Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

This study examined reliability and validity of the WCPA, an assessment of EF. Participants were 300 college students. Performance on two levels of the WCPA was compared to other EF measures and between students with and without learning differences. There were small–moderate correlations between tests with Level II and no differences between students with and without learning differences, necessitating a more challenging version of the WCPA.
