ABREU, Elissandra Serena de et al. Relationship between attention and performance in reading, writing and arithmetic in children. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2017, vol.16, n.4, pp. 458-467. ISSN 1677-0471.

This study sought to verify the relationship between attention (selective and sustained visual) and school performance (reading, writing and arithmetic). We evaluated 258 students from the 1st to the 9th year of elementary school in Brazilian public and private schools, with a mean age of 10.33 years (SD = 2.52). The students were evaluated by the Bells Test - children's version (BT) and by the School Performance Test - second edition (SPT-II). Test scores were correlated by the Pearson correlation coefficient, considering the level of significance of p <0.05. There were significant positive correlations of weak intensity between BT and SPT-II total scores and significant negative correlation of weak intensity between BT errors and omission scores and total SPT-II scores. An observable relationship between the constructs studied exists; however, it is suggested that future investigations use different methods to evaluate other skills related to school performance and attentional processes.
