J.V. Capella-Hernández, R. Ors-Carot

Universitat Politècnica de València (SPAIN)
The Industrial Computer Networks discipline is taught in fifth course of Industrial Engineering in the Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingenieros Industriales at Universidad Politécnica de Valencia (Spain). To find an assessment model for the knowledge acquired in this discipline is not a simple task, especially when it is an eminently practical matter, in which a theoretical base should be conjugated with its application to solve real communications problems in the industry. Also, it is sought that the student develops the necessary abilities so that, once concluded the discipline, the student be able to upgrade its knowledge and to adapt with success in the changing world of the industrial communications engineering.
In this manner, this work presents the experiences that during several years the professors have been carried out in this subject, with the objective of finding a good assessment model of student learning.
Our discipline doesn't usually have a high number of students because it is of free option and it is taught in last course, in addition the students are usually very motivated. For these reasons a new assessment model has been adopted inside a Project of Educational Innovation. This model consists on continuous multi-criteria assessment that seeks to evaluate the student learning keeping in mind all the activities that the student carries out. With this method, the students knows in all moment their qualifications, allowing to guide the learning process better.
The present paper describes the proposed assessment model, analyzing for each activity the assessment method and criteria, presenting the interesting obtained results.
