Abstract

This paper describes the development and implementation of AMBAR: an evaluation system whose objective is to measure children’s competence achievement during the early childhood better, and provide support material according to the child’s needs. Based on a predetermined scale, a level of achievement of each competency is assigned to the child, according to said level, the system will provide digital educational 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 significant differences (p=0.5) were determined before and after the use of any resources for any of said categories.
