The Learning Potential Assessment Device and Instrumental Enrichment as a Paradigm Shift.
Hilliard, Asa G., III
Reuven Feuerstein's Learning Potential Assessment Device and Instrumental Enrichment (LPAD/IE) system presents a valid approach to assessment, which moves from constructs, to pedagogical theory, to instruments, and to remedial strategies. This system uses standardized tests in a standard approach, but not for the purpose of the quantification of ranks for students. The system is used to set up the strategies for precision remedial teaching. Testing practice will be improved, the communication between assessors and teachers will be more validly grounded, and, above all, the LPAD/IE principles are generic to pedagogy. The adoption of an LPAD/IE approach must be followed by a massive inservice and public information effort. Otherwise, the LPAD/IE system will be seen merely as an alternative way of ranking by intellect for permanent placement in a category. (Author/PN)
