Abstract: This study explored the use of computerized dynamic testing in education for 8-year-old children. As for other domains, it was expected that the use of a computer would help overcome difficulties encountered with traditional dynamic test procedures. A recently developed computerized console was used, based on sensor technology, in combination with electronic tangibles. The main aim was to investigate if dynamic testing with graduated prompts offered by a computerized interface provided richer and more extensive information about test performance than with prompts offered by an examiner. Fifty-four children participated in the dynamic test procedure, which used a pretest–posttest training design. The results indicated no significant differences in children's performance based on whether prompts were offered by either the computer or by an examiner. The suitability of the procedure was measured by several behavioral outcome scores, the recording of which was made possible by the use of sensor technology. In the light of the findings, the authors conclude that dynamic testing can profit greatly from the use of computerized procedures.
