The accomplished experience, using the data processing platform Moodle, in the execution of multiple-option questionnaires with automatic evaluation; is presented. The obtained results have been utilized subsequently for their statistical analysis by means of centered measures and basic dispersion. The documented experience was implemented in the subject: Construction of Traditional Structures and Equipments (CETE), in the Technical Architecture (AT) career of the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC) The summary of the information includes the results obtained for a total sampling of 437 students distributed in four different groups. In those groups, three different professors taught the classes for the two available schedules. The obtained results facilitate to discern among the different professors, student typologies, student gender, different levels of acquired knowledge, relation to other evaluation techniques applied, and relation to the documented prior knowledge. It is proposed and analyzed, basing on the obtained results, educational adaptations that will allow future improvements in subjects with similar requests or needs on the part of the students. Similarly, possible poor preceding formation in students or in the teaching by professors can be determined; both shall be corrected after the analysis. This work is part of the effort achieved in the educational improvement field, that is being executed inside the Upper-Technical Building College of Barcelona (EPSEB) and framed in the European Space of Higher Education. The objective is to show the current descriptive focal point on the learning and continuous evaluation field, applied in this subject
