Dynamic assessment is a collaborative, flexible approach to assessment which explores how a child learns and which aspects of their learning require intervention.
Learn how you can improve learning with a whole school approach to dynamic assessment complete with classroom ideas, resources, and strategies. The authors who frequently train in DA provide simple explanations of the contemporary model of dynamic assessment that make the links between theory and practice explicit. . Each chapter has designated downloadable resources such as rating scales of affective and cognitive learning, checklists, goal ladders and more with easy-to-follow instructions on how they should be used.
This book will support you to understand DA principles and actively demonstrate mediated learning for meaningful interventions, consultations, clear support strategies and effective feedback and feedforward skills to not only help students learn, but to help them learn better.

I recommend Fraser Lauchlan and Clare Daly’s <i>Applying Dynamic Assessment in Schools<i/>. The writers brilliantly explain dynamic assessment theory and practice. As a Nigerian educational psychologist, I learned how to improve my assessment and student support. The book’s real-world examples, case studies, and graphical portrayal are essential for policymakers and educational psychologists implementing dynamic assessments in their schools or districts. Any educator should read it.
