Use of DA from Developmental-Cognitive Perspectives
The use of DA in developmental-cognitive research is based on the assumption that cognitive modifiability as an explanatory concept of other developmental variables or as an outcome criterion of other factors is more informative than static cognitive measures. Cognitive modifiability indicators were found to be informative both in prediction of changes in various cognitive domains and as predicted outcomes of other educational and developmental factors (Embretson, 1992; Guthke et al., 1997; Lidz, 1991; Tzuriel, 1998, 1999b).
