This type of tools is used by teachers to assess/evaluate students’ knowledge and/or skills. In some cases, students use the tools by themselves as part of a self-assessment process (e.g., self-regulated learning). Some examples of the use of this type of tools are:

  • The English teacher asks students to fill out an on-line form where they have to fill in the given missing verb in each sentence in its correct form in order to assess their knowledge on past tense and adjust accordingly his/her teaching approach
