CONTINUOUS ASSESSMENT WITH THE USE OF AN ELECTRONIC RESPONSE SYSTEM

In this work the use of an electronic automatic response system is shown in detail. The objective of the use of this tool is to facilitate the monitoring of the learning process in a continuous way. The system allows assigning a remote device for each student. In this way it is possible to record the answer from each student in different tasks. This methodology has been used in theoretical (in order to perform weekly test after the completion of different parts of the subject) and practical lessons (in order to solve problems or the diagnosis of clinical cases). This system reduces the time that the teacher takes to correct tests and exercices. At the same time, it allows the students to know inmediately the degree of knowledge they have over the assessed subject.
The methodology followed for the introduction of this tool in three subjects of the degree of Psychology (Abnormal Psychology I and II and Child Abnormal Psychology) and in one subject of the degree of Criminology (Forensic Psychiatry) is described in detail. In order to assess the efficacy of the tool the percentage of students who passed the official exam at the end of the term in the last three years (without the use of the tool) will be compared with the same percentage this year (with the use of the tool). Students’ satisfaction with the tool will be also assessed.
