Want to optimise academic outcomes?1 min read

DevelopEFs

Adele Diamond, 2014

“Evidence suggests that Executive Functions (EFs) account for more than 2 times more variation in final grades than does IQ, even in college (Duckworth & Seligman, 2005)”

“Counterintuitively, the most efficient and effective strategy for improving academic achievement is probably not to focus only on academics but to nurture all aspects of the child. While it may seem logical that if you want to improve academic outcomes you should concentrate on academic outcomes alone, not everything that seems logical is correct.”

What if you could try something new or do something differently from today onwards? How might you do it?

Till next time, dream economics.
