ICEE International Conference on Engineering Education 2011
This paper reports a research project carried out in order to support competency-based assessment practices which includes the creation of a public collaborative space (website It has been conceived to be a framework for teacher's activities with assessment tools, innovation resources, research projects and a collection of good practices and experiences for generic competences assessment.
