Dynamic Assessment, Intelligence and Measurement outlines a unique new approach to the assessment of human intelligence, while remaining firmly embedded within the scientific realms of psychology.
After introducing readers to the interconnected domains of dynamic assessment, intelligence, and measurement, research psychologist and intelligence expert Raegan Murphy probes deeply into the philosophical underpinnings of the measurement models currently utilized in psychological assessment and practice. Then, with a seamless fusion of philosophy, science methodology, and meta-theory, she proceeds to construct a novel framework for the assessment of models and theories, dynamic assessment, intelligence, measurement theory and statistical significance testing. In her concluding chapter, Murphy reveals how the simultaneous consideration of the relationships between dynamic assessment, intelligence, and measurement can offer innovative insights into the future development of psycho-educational assessment.
Dynamic Assessment, Intelligence and Measurement signals a bold new direction in shaping our understanding of the most effective approaches to the development of human potential.
