Abstract

The purposes of this study were to study the effects of a developethe Inhibitory control based on Thai traditional game training program in elementary school students and to test the effectiveness.The sample was 60 students of Watnuenpra School, Rayong in the 2018 academic year. The sample was randomized by using sample random sampling into 2 groups. Experimental groups and control groups. Each group consisted of 30 students. The research instruments were 1) The Inhibitory control base on Thai traditional game training program in elementary school students and 2) Go/No Go Task. The experimental group received the program 2 times per week and the control group received the regular instruction from the school in the same period. The assessments were done in 3 phases: pretest, posttest and follow-up phase. The data were statistically analyzed by utilizing a repeated measures analysis of variance and paired-different test by Bonferroni method.


The results revealed that the interaction between the experimental methodology and the duration of the experiment were found statistically significant at .05 level. Students in the experimental group had the mean score of inhibitory control higher thanthose in the control group in the posttest and follow-up with statistically significant at .05 level. Students in the experimental group had the mean score of inhibitory control in the posttest and follow-up higher than the pretest with statistically significant at .05 level. It was concluded that the inhibitory control based on Thai traditional game training program in elementary school students had the effectiveness on enhancing inhibitory control in elementary school students.
