About the Authors
  • 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.

    • Presents an alternative to conventional testing, which stifles rather than encourages the development of human potential
    • Reviews all major approaches to dynamic testing in an exhaustive and objective way
    • Shows that dynamic testing measures aspects of human abilities not measured by conventional tests of abilities, such as IQ tests or SATs
