Abstract

Introduction: The term dynamic assessment (DA) refers to an assessment, by an active teaching process, of a child's perception, learning, thinking, and problem solving. The process is aimed at modifying an individual's cognitive functioning and observing subsequent changes in learning and problem-solving patterns within the testing situation. DA has been advocated as an alternative and/or supplemental approach to traditional standardized testing with children who are culturally and linguistically diverse (CLD). Methods: This study was a causal-comparative that including 58 children of 5 kindergartens of Mashhad, with 6 to 6.5-year-old, with available sampling. Kindergartens were selected of areas (1,2,4,5,6) of Mashhad-Iran. Variable of intelligence in children, was controlled by the Raven’s IQ test. Results: Eight children were perceived process at the level of symbolic, eighteen children in the visual-image (visual) and thirty-two children were perceived process at the level of visual-motor (functional representation). Results showed children were perceived process at the level of symbolic, only 50 of them were used these method in practice. These results for children in the visual-image was 66.6 and for children were perceived process at the level of visual-motor was 68.7. Conclusion: Dynamic assessment is a method of education and according to methods of teacher (symbolic, visual, functional representation), children also, often engage in the same level of performance and problem solving. Keywords: Children, Dynamic assessment, Problem-solving, ZPD.
