POMARES BORY, Eduardo de Jesús et al. Relevance of the formative evaluation in the workshop class: a case study. EDUMECENTRO [online]. 2018, vol.10, n.3, pp.56-70. ISSN 2077-2874.

Background: the formative evaluation contributes to the self-management of knowledge from a comprehensive conception of learning assessment. Objective: to assess the relevance of the use of formative assessment in the workshop classes of the subject Cells, Tissues and integumentary System. Methods: the research was developed in the "Salvador Allende" Medical Sciences Faculty, of Havana during the 2017-2018 academic year. The qualitative case study method was applied, applying the grounded theory procedure. Analysis-synthesis, induction-deduction and historical-logical were used as theoretical methods. Among the empirical ones, documentary analysis and scientific observation were applied. Results: the superficial learning approach based on the memorization of data and information was specified as the essential emerging category of the data obtained, from which the formative evaluation was applied and the feedback was developed based on the use of conceptual maps and schemes for information processing; This procedure was gradually incorporated by some students, although resistance to the change of method in independent work prevailed. Conclusions: the formative evaluation constituted a didactic alternative coherent with the learning needs that the students showed, so its use is recommended in the subjects that make up the Biological Bases of Medicine discipline.
