Description

Dynamic Assessment, Intelligence and Measurement paves the way for the development of dynamic assessment by applying this unique approach to the assessment of human potential.
  • Explores the relationship that dynamic assessment shares with intelligence and measurement
  • Outlines a new approach to the assessment of human intelligence while remaining rooted within the scientific realm of psychology
  • Fuses philosophy, science methodology, and meta-theory to offer an innovative framework for the assessment of models and theories, dynamic assessment, intelligence, measurement theory, and statistical significance testing
  • Provides the theoretical underpinnings that can lead to a new way forward for the 'movement' of dynamic assessment
