Assessment is essential for certification, regulation and feedback within the education process. Our research effort focus on the last two features, and tries to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the students, in order to adapt assessment activities for better learning results. The approach consists in designing a technological artefact for formative assessment with visual feedback during the learning process, to meet students' demands for personalised tests in order to effectively assess the learning outcomes. While many of the assessment tools are oriented to quantitatively measure the student's knowledge acquisition, the idea behind this work is to use assessment as an analysis tool to measure, optimize the learning process, personalise assessment and involve students, through an adaptive approach, where each student can visualize the dynamic process of knowledge acquisition.
