ROZAS, M.R. et al. Self-evaluation of nursing learning with Hot Potatoes interactive exercises. Educ. méd. [online]. 2008, vol.11, n.1, pp.19-27. ISSN 1575-1813.

Introduction. The interactive exercises of self-assessment are a very useful tool to foster the autonomous learning of the student. The suite Hot Potatoes allows the design of interactive activities for the formative evaluation, incorporating a system of feedback that reinforce the not assimilated contents when the answer is not correct. The aim of study is to find out the students opinion about the utilization of the suite Hot Potatoes. Materials and methods. Cross-sectional descriptive study in Barcelona University students from Maternity Nursing. Data were gathered through a questionnaire designed ad hoc. Results. The exercises better appraised and the considerate of less difi culty ones were those of multiple-choice; the most dificult, the matching texts and gap-fi ll exercises. All students considered that the method had motivated their interest in the subject and it had facilitated their learning. 71% considers that the method has been useful to acquiring knowledge and has been very useful as a study tool. The aspects that the students consider more interesting include that: they are a method of review and study, it facilitates the learning in a pleasant way, and it allows to know the level of knowledge and to correct the errors during the learning. Among the aspects that would improve they would include more exercises and questions. Conclusions. The method has had a good acceptance and has fostered the autonomous learning. We consider that it is a self-assessment tool suitable for the adaptation of the new European Credit Transfer System.
