New model of mapping difficulties in solving analogical problems
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).
