Advanced Skills In Dynamic Assessment

A training event by Fraser Lauchlan and Clare Daly


Wednesday 22nd July 2020

This workshop is designed to develop educational psychologists’ existing skills in dynamic assessment, specifically through the means of using a video-enhanced feedback approach.  The digital feedback approach will be demonstrated as an effective means of feeding back the results of dynamic assessment in such a way as to promote the potential success of a subsequent intervention plan.

Recent research evidence has highlighted that the use of video is considered best practice for feedback, and the developing use of approaches such as VIG and VERP are further evidence of the increasing popularity of such a method of digital feedback. Combined with the richness of detail that can be gathered using dynamic assessment, such an approach to assessment and intervention can potentially be an essential part of an EP’s toolkit.

This workshop will consider this unique combination of dynamic assessment and video-enhanced feedback using real-life case studies as a basis for practical activities. The training is suitable for those who have attended previous dynamic assessment training and who wish to develop their existing skills further using video and evidence-based outcomes.
