The main goal of the study was to map the difficulties and cognitive processes among  adolescents (aged 13–21, N = 30) and adults (aged 25–66, N = 30) with mild and moderate  intellectual disability (ID) when solving analogical problems. The participants were  administered the Conceptual and Perceptual Analogical Modifiability test. A three-fold tailored  dynamic assessment (DA) model for mapping difficulties was constructed based on  Sternberg’s analogical components model (encoding, inference, mapping, application): (a)  mapping pre-teaching difficulties; (b) assessing the level of mediation; and (c) analyzing

post-teaching responses. Another goal was to find out whether participants receiving  ‘‘tailored’’ mediation would receive higher scores than participants receiving the standard  DA procedure (adolescents aged 14–20; N = 30) and adults (25–55, N = 31).
