Introducing Dynamic Assessment: An Interactive Approach Linking Assessment and Intervention – Virtual Workshops

These virtual workshops will be an introduction to Dynamic Assessment (DA), which is a unique approach to assessment that involves the assessor actively and deliberately interacting with the learner in order to bring about change. It is focussed on the process of learning and giving insights into how individuals learn and solve problems.

The workshops will run on 28th January and 11th February, 1.00pm-4.00pm.

Although no prior knowledge or experience of DA is needed and the sessions will introduce all relevant theory and principles, the workshops are also intended to refresh and extend upon existing training and skills: These workshops will include:

  • Principles of DA
  • Mediation: how to bring about change during assessment
  • Choosing and administering DA tests
  • Using ‘off the shell’ games and puzzles dynamically
  • Using DA for specific aspect of SEND. For example, speech, language and communication needs (SLCN) or specific learning difficulties (SpLD)
  • A format for planning DA, classroom observation of cognitive functions, recording DA Assessment and feeding back outcomes.

These workshops are suitable for professionals working in the area of SEND: SENCos, specialist teachers, speech and language therapists, Educational Psychologists, Clinical Psychologists, and Assistant Psychologists.
