Overview

Dynamic Testing: The Nature and Measurement of Learning Potential / Edition 1

The goal of this book is to present and evaluate the concept of dynamic testing. Unlike "static" tests such as the SAT or IQ tests, it emphasizes learning potential rather than past learning accomplishments. This book is unique in its wide-ranging review of virtually all approaches to dynamic testing. It also suggests alternatives to the typical kinds of tests given in the United States—tests that often seem to stifle rather than encourage the development of human potential.
