The experimental group received ten working sessions of curriculum of executive functions based on the Anderson’s model. The used tools were Conners Teacher Questionnaire, Dortaj Academic Performance Questionnaire, and McDermott Learning Behaviors Scale (LBS). Data were analyzed using multivariate analysis of covariance method. Findings: The curriculum of executive functions based on the Anderson’s model effectively increased self-efficacy, emotional effects, planning, and lack of control of the outcomes of educational performance (P < 0.001 for all). In addition, it significantly increased motivation of competency, attitude toward learning, persistence/attention, and the flexibility strategy of learning behaviors (P < 0.001 for all).
