The present study aims to understand the potentialities and implications, to the teacher and her practice, of the use of formative assessment with the support of educational technology.
Regarding the research methodology, this study is part of the research on own practice. The participants were the teacher, who was simultaneously a researcher, and the students of a 9th grade class.
In the course of this experience it was found that the use of formative assessment allows, on the one hand, the student to realize what he manages to understand, and what he has to do to overcome what are less consolidated parts of the content in
study; and, on the other, the teacher to detect in a timely manner the difficulties of the student and to change strategies to allow the student to overcome his difficulties.
The lack of time, the difficulties in managing the curriculum and the existence of national exams are three of the main obstacles mentioned by the teachers for the non-realization of formative assessment. In this experience it was found that the use
of new technologies turns possible to overcome these limitations.
This type of assessment had a very positive impact on teacher’s practice and in the learning of the students.
