In recent years School is subject to constant legislative and social changes. Knowledge today is conveyed more and more by new technologies of communication and information and reach ever wider layers of population, but this epistemological spread of knowledge to everyone has a very significant educational problem: it’s necessary to know which are learning knowledge in learning process and how the school should transmit these knowledge. In this situation, the school must offer all young people tools to develop key skills to prepare them for adult life and to build themselves a culture useful for further learning. Virtual community is an environment where person can meet, change information and knowledge, so before there were individual knowledge and after there were collective knowledge.
This study has the aim to understand if assessment changes in virtual communities for learning or whether it maintains its connotations in an innovative environment. What changes in the assessment of skills in a virtual community is not the evaluation process, or indicators, but the tools that we feel could be better respond to the social being closer to young people. It is clear that the evaluation in virtual communities is not depersonalized assessment. The human element in education is a priority item. School to teach respect, sense of responsibility, self-awareness, listening to the always needs a direct relationship with the pupil. Technological tool should just be a tool, but it can not replace a look of reassurance or a smile of approval by the teacher. They are worth more than anything else to build self-esteem.
