Abstract:

Dynamic Assessment (DA) reconceptualizes classroom interactions by arguing
that teaching and assessment should not be distinct undertakings but must
be integrated as a single activity that seeks to understand learner
abilities by actively supporting their ongoing development. DA is based in
the Vygotskian notion of the Zone of Proximal Development (ZPD) which
captures the uniquely human potential to exceed our present capabilities by
working in cooperation with others whose dialogic interaction mediates us
to higher levels of functioning. DA offers a framework for co-constructing
a ZPD with learners in order to simultaneously reveal the full range of
their abilities and promote development.

This book presents the first in-depth analysis of DA's application to
particular problems of L2 development. It includes detailed discussions of
the core theoretical tenets as well as guidelines for implementing DA
principles in L2 classrooms. The book will be of interest to language
teacher educators, language testers, classroom practitioners, and students
and researchers in the areas of SLA, language pedagogy, and assessment.

Written for:
Researchers in applied linguistics, language testing and assessment, and L2
pedagogy, L2 classroom interaction, L2 teaching and learning, and theories
of L2 development, graduate students and scholars in SLA

Keywords:
L2

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as such 
can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 501(c) 
Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These donations 
can be offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return (U.S. tax 
payers only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact your 
financial advisor.

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any 
gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your contacting 
your human resources department and sending us a form that the EMU Foundation fills 
in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple administrative procedure 
that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra penny. 
Please take a moment to check if your company operates such a program.

Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
