SANTANA, Alanny Nunes de; MELO, Monilly Ramos Araujo  e  MINERVINO, Carla Alexandra da Silva Moita. Instruments for the Evaluation of Executive Functions: Systematic Review of the PreviousFiveYears. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2019, vol.18, n.1, pp. 96-107. ISSN 1677-0471.

The evaluation of executive functions (EF) is problematic due to the lack of methodological consensus regarding the evaluation protocol. Therefore, a systematic review was carried aiming to verify which instruments have been used nationally and internationally for the evaluation of EF in the previous five years. A total of 35 articles, published in English or Portuguese, in the SciELO, INDEXPSI, LILACS, PePSIC and CAPES periodicals databases were analyzed. Comparative studies were mainly found, followed by correlational and instrument validation/adaptation studies. The most used instruments were the Wisconsin Card Sorting Task, Trail Making Test, Wechsler Scales and Stroop Tests. A lack of instruments that evaluate the EF domains simultaneously was verified, as well as a need for the construction of new instruments, particularly directed toward children and adolescents.
