Dynamic Assessment (LPAD)

“If you are unprepared to look at your student’s strengths, don’t touch their weaknesses.” ~ Reuven Feuerstein

Unleash hidden abilities.

Feuerstein’s Learning Propensity Assessment Device (LPAD) is a dynamic evaluation used to determine how an individual thinks and learns. Comprised of varied cognitive tasks, the LPAD uses a test–mediate–retest model, incorporating learning throughout the examination to decipher the examinee’s cognitive functions. Learning is the most crucial part of the procedure, as the examinee’s growth is continually measured against their previous performance.

Unlike static assessments, such as IQ tests, the LPAD is not concerned with what you know compared to your peers – it focuses on how you learn and how to strengthen your learning ability further.

Who is the LPAD for?

Educators wishing to understand the cognitive makeup of their students better.

University admissions

Workplaces pursuing new talent or seeking to identify existing talent


how it works

How it works.

The examinee is presented with a series of tasks to solve independently. Their progress is observed as they complete these tasks, noting difficulties and errors. Next, the examinee receives mediation, during which they are taught various strategies for solving the tasks. Mediation may be as brief as five minutes or as long as an hour, depending on the examinee’s difficulty processing the material. Finally, they are retested, noting which strategies they use to measure how much learning has been retained and transferred to new and more challenging tasks. This presents the examiner with a clear understanding of how the examinee learns, highlighting the most efficient way to teach them to tap into their latent learning potential.
