This article comprises two parts. This part provides an introduction to dynamic assessment, and in particular the work of Feuerstein, Tzuriel and their colleagues in Israel. A case example is outlined, in which dynamic assessment materials developed by Tzuriel are used. Part 2 of this article, to be published in the next issue of this journal, discusses some of the possible reasons why dynamic assessment, despite its value, has not yet become a significant feature of educational psychologists’ practice.
