The MEFS is based on the work of George McCloskey, Ph.D., a researcher and clinician with more than 30 years of experience in test development and more than 20 years of clinical experience with executive functions (EF). The MEFS is the only EF assessment instrument that is based on a comprehensive, theoretical model of EF. The model incorporates multiple facets of executive control: self-regulation, self-realization, and self-determination. The result is a scale that allows greater depth and coverage of the multi-dimensional and complex facets of EF.
