Journal of Technology and Science Education, v5 n2 p97-106 2015
The first years in engineering degree courses are usually made of large groups with a low teacher-student ratio. Overcrowding in classrooms hinders continuous assessment much needed to promote independent learning. Therefore, there is a need to apply some kind of automatic evaluation to facilitate the correction of exercises outside the classroom. We introduce here a first experience using surveys in Moodle 2.0 in order to get an automatic evaluation of practices in our Database course. We report survey valuation of the autonomous learning tool and preliminary statistics assessing correlation to an improvement in the practice exam marks.
