This research aims at improving the management of learning and teaching process (LTP), more specifically observing the students' learning achievement and persistence, and teacher's interventions. To fulfill this purpose a Collaborative Management Model (CollMMod) has been defined during the last four years. In this paper we describe its main components (LTP-goals, LTP-stakeholders, LTP-variables, LTP-instruments, LTP-assessments) and its application in a course about Problem Solving and Algorithms at Universidad Nacional del Comahue using LTP-cognitive-variables. Results from the experience show that: collaborative members engaged in conducting and managing a TLP process may positively influence students' achievement; persistent practice activities where students can detect and correct their errors contribute to improve their achievement. Collected data were statistically analyzed; preliminary results show that there exists a moderate correlation between TLP cognitive variable-derived indicators and students' rate of success in final exams.
