Frequently asked questions:

How does MindCHANGE help kids with learning difficulties? Dynamic assessment refers to the assessment of thinking, perception, learning and problem solving through a means of an active teaching process aimed at modifying cognitive functioning [or thinking]. Based on the theory and concepts of mediated learning experience and structure cognitive change [or modifiability] this process looks at how the learner thinks and if not, why not. Each child is capable of learning, has the potential for change and with guided learning is able to succeed and achieve.

How does dynamic assessment help children struggling with learning and cognitive difficulties? Dynamic assessment is ideal for struggling children with learning difficulties, attention or language difficulties, lack of achievement and progress. It is also ideal for example, for those learners who do not have test-taking behaviour, are anxious about being assessed, have difficulty understanding questions and the task they are being given. Each given assessment task is constructed for learning, graduated for teaching and guaranteed for success.

How does dynamic assessment differ from other forms of assessment? The key to dynamic assessment is intervention. The learner is guided through various steps of learning throughout the various assessment tasks. They sample particular learning behaviours through a mediating process, develop new strategies for better thinking and reach a level of new capabilities and potential. The measures of modifiability are closely related to the levels of mediation used throughout the assessment process.
