FONSECA, Maria Fernanda B. Coelho da; CARDOSO, Thiago da Silva Gusmão; MUSZKAT, Mauro  and  BUENO, Orlando Francisco Amodeo. Analysis of association between the academic performance, the speed of execution of tasks and behavior of children from EACI-P. Rev. psicopedag. [online]. 2011, vol.28, n.87, pp. 226-236.

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to analyze the association between academic achievement, assessed by Child Behavior Scale for Teacher (EACI-P), as well as to correlate it to behavioral problems, speed of performance and IQ score. METHODS: This is a cross-sectional study analysing EACIP Inventory answers through standardized comparison to neuropsychological variables in 84 children. RESULTS: Hyperactivity and conduct problems prevailed in 7.9% (7 cases) children, 2.2% of cases showed difficulties in Independent Functioning / Positive Socialization, 13.5% revealed inattention, 5.6% (5 cases) showed symptoms of neuroticism / anxiety and 1.1% (1 case) of cases experiences a negative socialization. Global performance was associated with inattention scores and positive socialization, whereas hyperactivity symptoms were correlated to inattention. Speed of performance was associated with negative socialization and IQ score was negatively correlated to all behavioral variables except independent functioning. CONCLUSION: It is possible through the application of EACI-P to obtain data to understand behavior and learning correlations, supporting early intervention. Behavior, speed of performance and intelligence could be either risk or protective factors for learning if they are preserved or impaired. Such data suggest that teacher-student interface is crucial to understand psychosocial development of children and could give support to positive approaches to face learning, behavior and interpersonal problems.
