Abstract:In the end of the nineties, the dominant education method in economy was the magisterial class. Along the last years, the Bologna declaration (1999) and advent of electronic data media have produced a clearly different technologically and methodologically approach. Following this new context, in the beginning of this decade, we have introduced some improvements in the learning education of our Economic Statistics subjects. We have increased the use of new technologies, introduced continuous evaluation methods of students and so focused on a blended learning model.
This paper not only describes the mentioned progresses but compares the effect of two approaches: the traditional teaching method and e-learning method with continuous assessment. The different methodologies are confronted with the academic results of students along the last years. This empirical exercise offers an evaluation of the methods successful. The results point out factors that may be important for making new progress in the learning education system and the continuous assessment model.
Keywords: Assessments models, e-learning.
