Ambar: A Competence-Evaluating System for Preschool Children

Elena F Ruiz-Ledesma, Laura I Garay-Jiménez

Abstract

This paper describes the development and implementation of AMBAR: an evaluation system whose objective is to better measure children’s competence achievement during the early childhood, and provide support material according to the child’s needs. Based on a predetermined scale, a level of achievement of each competence is assigned to the child, according to said level, the system will provide educational digital resources to the student, as to aid their development and reinforce previously acquired knowledge. After the child has completed their assigned activities, AMBAR will reevaluate their learning, assign them a new level of achievement, and provide new exercises. The system does also generate a results record for every student. The employed methodology was of a mixed nature; qualitative, because of the description of profiles associated to descriptively analyzed categories, and quantitative, given that statistic significative differences (p=0.5) were determined before and after the use of any resources for any of said categories.
