Applying Dynamic Assessment in Schools: A Practical Approach to Improve Learning (Paperback)

Applying Dynamic Assessment in Schools: A Practical Approach to Improve Learning By Fraser Lauchlan, Clare Daly Cover Image


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.
