In this work, a number of proposals are given to improve a simple continuous assessment method implemented by a group of professors in Electric Machinery at the National Technological University, in Argentina.
Said method is part of an attempt to gain new experiences toward the validation of the efficacy of continuous learning assessment techniques, which has already been demonstrated in several
pedagogical studies. Continuous learning assessment has also been considered as a valid alternative in said university’s regulations.
The procedure herein exposed, which tends to attain maximum efficacy at a minimum cost, was developed while trying out several other assessment methods. Among other benefits, said methods gradually brought about greater commitment among a high proportion of the students, their approval of correlative subjects during Electric Machinery’s term, and better performances
in the first available dates for the subject’s final exam.
