Abstract Supporting Attachment:
Dynamic assessment assumes a different perspective about assessment than that which is traditionally done by many
classroom teachers.Despite the growing understanding of the importance of classroom assessment in the learning
process, testing researchers have overlooked the area of classroom based assessment. The role of Arabic as a
foreign language teachers as both instructors and assessors has not been given adequate attention due to the
traditional method of one time performance testing.
Through this compination, Arabic language teachers and practitioners can get closer toward the integration of
instruction and assessment in view of gynamic assessment.
Dynamic instruction has been pursued as a way of more accurately assessing learners potential for future
development by embedding instruction in the assessment process itself ( Sternberg & Ggigorenko 2002).
In this frame work the mediator engages with learners in tasks offering support or mediation. Mediation
may include activities, leading questions, hints , prompts, feedback, and examples that all stress a dialogic way
of Arabic language teaching.
The purpose of this research is to show the effectiveness of Dynamic Assessment (DA) as a teaching- testing
method in the the Arabic language classroom.
