Abstract:One of the tasks of the teachers is to assess the university student in the framework of a subject that must be taught during a specific period. The institution requires a final grade in quantitative format that will be included in the academic record. Beyond this numerical note evaluating the student's learning involves designing a series of learning activities and dynamics that can be assessly, tracking process, progress and product, managing a large amount of information accompanied by a constant dialogue with the student (individually or in groups) about the contents, objectives and competencies of the subject, etc. Therefore, it requires time and analysis strategies and communication. Strategies that involve assessment resources, data collection, organization and analysis of information, feedback, dialogue, self-assessment, etc. At this point (formative, quantitative and qualitative assessment with feedback and feed forward) the teacher finds a series of limitations that perhaps ICTS can help solve them.
Lecturers and researchers from different areas of expertise and faculties at the UAB have decided to gather together in order to identify and analyze the technological resources that could assist the assessment of the Higher Education students. This paper seeks to share the works by the participants, as well as to highlight future projects that will be carried out in the field of new technologies applied to the assessment process in a sustainable and transformative manner. We advance that one of the emerging questions in the group has been the protection of data and privacy in the assessment of student learning.
