Presentation title: “From the concept of ZPD to the practice of dynamic assessment”.


Dynamic assessment (DA) is a rapidly growing trend in psychological, educational and language research and practice. The key element of all DA approaches is the belief that evaluation of individual learning potential is no less important than testing the current performance level and that the best way of doing this is to insert learning or/and interactive elements into the assessment procedure. The goal of this presentation is to identify the main conceptual aspects of DA and to elaborate the relationships between various DA approaches and the Vygotskian theoretical tradition.
