Abstract

[EN] This paper analyses to what extent, and how, student’s work can be used to improve students’ on-site learning experience and enrich the course evaluation process. The work presented focuses on gathering and analysing different information related to the out-of-class work carried out by students in various Bachelor and Master courses taught at the Universitat Politècnica de València. Results show that there is not a clear relationship between the time devoted to a given task and the attained results, but they highlight especial cases to be considered, like a number of students that devote excessive time to the task but get poor marks. Moreover, the lack of adequate supervision of outof-class work leads to situations where teachers underestimate or overestimate this time. Supervision of student’s outof-class work is thus an essential asset for adequately tuning and improving courses content and scheduling, providing meaningful feedback to students, and rewarding the personal work they invest on tasks, something of major importance for keeping students’ motivation in continuous learning and evaluation processes.Antonino Daviu, E.; Andrés Martínez, DD.; Palomares Chust, AA.; Ruiz García, JC.; Gisbert Domenech, MC.; Peña Cerdán, A.; Ballester Server, JV....
