(Download PDF/Epub) Dynamic Assessment: A Vygotskian Approach To Understanding And Promoting L2 Development 1st Edition By Matthew E. Poehner
Dynamic Assessment (DA) reconceptualizes classroom interactions by arguing that teaching and assessment should not be distinct undertakings. This book offers a much-needed coherent framework for co-constructing a ZPD with learners in order to simultaneously reveal the full range of their abilities and promote development. DA has a long history in education but it is new to the L2 field. This book provides the first book-length treatment of DA in the language classroom.
