Rights accessOpen Access
The experience achieved using the tool “Questionnaires”, available inside the Virtual Campus of architectural engineering school in northeast Spain, is presented. “Questionnaires” is an adequate and simple instrument to evaluate the knowledge level achieved by students. This work shows and identifies the control indices of adaptation for the questionnaires, like the Facility Index, the Standard Deviation, the Discrimination Index and the Discrimination Coefficient. Derived from these parameters, the educational performances are inferred, identified and predicted. The conclusions of this work, permit to modify deficient knowledge-evaluation practices, to identify needs for specific groups or for students with particular requirements; being, in this way, feasible to apply these parameters with guarantee of success in similar evaluation processes
