The dynamic assessment is based on the concept of“zone of proximal development” by L.S.Vygotsky. Although Vygotsky also mentioned “collaboration with more capable peers”, few studies on the dynamic assessment have focused on it. The present study investigated the feasibility of dynamic assessment using group learning in social studies in junior high school. The author employed the analysis intervention by teachers, the conversation among students in small groups and answers worksheets or post-tests.
