Resumen

La evaluación formativa es un componente necesario no solo en las clases presenciales, sino también en el Entorno Virtual de Aprendizaje. Es necesaria una investigación exploratoria sobre evaluación formativa específicamente para mejorar el aprendizaje y la enseñanza del inglés. Por otro lado, la pandemia de COVID-19 ha provocado cambios educativos sin precedentes en la enseñanza y el aprendizaje, y ha afectado las actitudes de los estudiantes hacia el aprendizaje. Este estudio reporta los resultados de la investigación-acción a través de instrumentos cuantitativos, pruebas pre-post y encuestas pre-post que involucraron a 25 estudiantes ecuatorianos. Este artículo abordó dos preguntas de investigación: 1. ¿En qué medida los estudiantes mejorarán sus habilidades en inglés después de experimentar una evaluación formativa a través de Symbaloo Learning Paths? 2. ¿Cuáles son las perspectivas de los estudiantes sobre la experiencia de la evaluación formativa a través de la aplicación Symbaloo para mejorar sus habilidades en inglés? Los resultados demostraron una mejora significativa en las habilidades de los estudiantes en inglés, d = 4.081229 y p .000 <0.05. Además, la actitud de los estudiantes hacia el aprendizaje cambió positivamente. Se concluye que la evaluación formativa a través de las rutas de aprendizaje de Symbaloo tiene el potencial de mejorar el desempeño del alumno e influye positivamente en su motivación. Por ende, se recomienda la realización de más estudios sobre la implementación de rutas de aprendizaje a través de Symbaloo para facilitar la evaluación formativa. Estos hallazgos tienen implicaciones para estudios futuros con un enfoque en la enseñanza.
