Poehner, Matthew E.; Infante, Paolo; Takamiya, Yumi – Journal of Cognitive Education and Psychology, 2018
The present article reports on a study that extends Dynamic Assessment (DA) to the domain of second language (L2) writing instruction. As in general education, the L2 field has increasingly moved toward a process approach to writing that emphasizes the importance of multiple drafts, opportunities for feedback, and attempts at revision. The present…

Mazzotta, Mizuki; Belcher, Diane – Journal of Cognitive Education and Psychology, 2018
Despite the growing consensus on the potential of dynamic assessment (DA) in second language (L2) development, application of DA procedures to corrective feedback (CF) on L2 writing has received relatively little attention. Still more neglected has been the social-emotional outcomes of CF operationalized as DA procedures. The present study…

Zuckerman, Galina A. – Journal of Cognitive Education and Psychology, 2018
Mastering the ability for learning to learn is the most ambitious goal of modern educators. A distinction is made between two relatively independent components of this expertise: (a) the reflective component of the learning to learn ability that allows a person comprehend what knowledge and skills he or she lacks to act in the new situation; (b)…

Navarro, Juan-José; Mourgues-Codern, Catalina V. – Journal of Cognitive Education and Psychology, 2018
The development of novel educational assessment models founded on item response theory (IRT), as well as software tools designed to implement these models, has contributed to the surge in computerized adaptive tests (CATs). The distinguishing characteristic of CATs is that the sequence of items on a test progressively adapts to the performance…

Fiestas, Christine E.; Peña, Elizabeth D. – Journal of Cognitive Education and Psychology, 2018
This study applied the dynamic assessment (DA) of narratives in a bilingual Spanish- and English-speaking early elementary population. We examined transfer and change in narrative performance within and across languages after mediated learning experience (MLE) in Spanish or English. Sixty-eight bilingual children were randomized to two groups:…

Lampert-Shepel, Elina; Murphy, Colette – Journal of Cognitive Education and Psychology, 2018
Authors conceptualize the notion of reflection as a higher psychological function from the perspective of cultural-historical psychology of Lev Vygotsky and discuss the development of teachers' reflective practice in the process of mastering and creating mediational means of reflective practice. In the current research literature the terms…

Kozulin, Alex; Levi, Tziona – Journal of Cognitive Education and Psychology, 2018
Little attention has been paid to the question about generality versus modularity of the learning potential (LP). The main research question of our study was: Is the students' LP established with the help of a dynamic assessment of their English as a foreign language (EFL) oral proficiency general enough to predict their subsequent EFL reading and…

Poehner, Matthew E.; van Compernolle, Rémi A. – Journal of Cognitive Education and Psychology, 2018
This article examines the implications of argument-based validity for the continued development of dynamic assessment (DA) research and practice. We propose that the move toward validation as a process of interpretation and evidence-based argument is commensurable with DA but that fundamental ontological differences with conventional approaches to…

Poehner, Matthew E.; van Compernolle, Rémi A.; Esteve, Olga; Lantolf, James P. – Journal of Cognitive Education and Psychology, 2018
This article considers the pedagogical research informed by the writings of L. S. Vygotsky concerned with the teaching and learning of languages beyond the first (L2). Following a brief overview of developments in the application of Vygotskian theory to explicating processes of L2 development in instructional settings, we consider more recent…

Tzuriel, David; Schorr-Edelsztein, Hani; Bauminger-Zvieli, Nirit – Journal of Cognitive Education and Psychology, 2018
Children with specific learning disabilities (SLD) exhibit specific difficulties in high-order components of emotional understanding that involve language (e.g., recognition of complex emotions from situations), or defining emotions and providing examples. The objectives of the current study were to study (a) modifiability of emotional…

Qin, Tianyu; Zhang, Jie – Journal of Cognitive Education and Psychology, 2018
Dynamic assessment (DA) has been implemented to diagnose language-related issues and to promote second language (L2) learners' development through intervention (Poehner, 2008). The goal is to evaluate not only what a learner can do on his or her own but also how far he or she can go with instructional intervention. Recently, scholars have…

Lawson, Alyssa P.; Mirinjian, Arineh; Son, Ji Y. – Journal of Cognitive Education and Psychology, 2018
Understanding how struggling students approach math is vital to designing effective math lessons. Many low achieving students rely on a weak knowledge of procedures and attempt calculations without adequate consideration of the problem. We investigated how enabling or preventing premature calculations affected learning math. Students were…

Shamir, Adina – Journal of Cognitive Education and Psychology, 2018
Despite young children's increasing access to electronic books (e-books) and the evidence indicating their effectiveness for promoting language and literacy, no study has yet explored the e-book's effect in this area among students with intellectual disability (ID). Motivated by this challenge, the current study sought to investigate the effect of…
