Abstract: The concept of dynamic assessment is primarily built on the aspect of Vygotsky’s work which is directly concerned with the development of a person’s potential abilities (Poehner & Lantolf 2003, 2005). And a central tenet of this approach is that it considers abilities to be “malleable and flexible rather than fixed” (Sternberg & Grigorenko 2002). Since dynamic assessment has played a pivotal role in the realm of assessment in the last three decades, thus, in this study, Iranian university instructors' perceptions toward the application of dynamic assessment have been explored.
