AN AGENT FRAMEWORK FOR PERSONALISED STUDENT SELF-EVALUATION

María T. París, Mariano Cabrero

Abstract

The European Higher Education Area, an agreement by 29 countries to unite and harmonise qualifications and Universities’ rapprochement to the real demands of the labour market, will make a significant change in the traditional model of teaching. The lecturer will have to adapt his methods, techniques and teaching tools to carry out more personalised monitoring of the student’s work, leading to the possibility of continuous evaluation. The suitable use of ICT can make a contribution to improving the quality of teaching and learning. In this context, a self-evaluation platform is developed using the technology of Intelligent Agents. This system can be adaptable as it adjusts the various self-evaluation tests to the student’s level of knowledge. Each student has a profile and, depending on this, timing and interaction is set by the agents.
