Abstract or Summary
  • Inhibitory control, a salient component of self-regulation, predicts child academic and social competency into the college years. Typical measures of self-regulation (including teacher report, direct assessment, and observation) focus on inhibitory control and are each susceptible to unique flaws. The current study examined whether informant bias or differential contextual environments influenced the resulting measure of inhibitory control in preschool children and whether this varied by child gender. Three measures of inhibitory control were given to 22 preschoolers in the Pacific Northwest. The results suggest that context has a greater effect on measured inhibitory control than does teacher bias, and that this tendency may be stronger for girls than for boys. Child inhibitory control may be a reaction to contextual cues as much as an innate capacity. Acknowledging the flexibility of self-regulatory skills may allow teachers to draw out hidden potential in their students and to prevent the destructive labeling that can lead to self-fulfilling prophecies. Key Words: self-regulation, inhibitory control, preschool children, early childhood education, teacher-child relationships, development of self-regulation, development of inhibitory control, HTKS, teacher report, direct observation, inCLASS observations
