The major objective of this paper is to demonstrate the effectiveness of dynamic
assessment (DA) in revealing outcomes of cognitive education programmes.
Three programmes based on mediated learning experience theory are reviewed:
Feuerstein's Instrumental Enrichment, Bright Start, and Peer Mediation with
Young Children. In all three programmes DA was more effective than
standardised tests in revealing their effects. The paper includes discussion of
mediated learning experience theory and its relation to DA. The content and focus
of the cognitive education programmes are described as are the specific test
instruments selected for use in the DA sessions. The paper concludes by
considering reasons why DA is not used more frequently in educational research
