Assessment Instrument Basic Skills (IACoBá) which is applied so online, was created by Joan Gracia Osuna (with the technical collaboration of Alfonso Darriba Garcia and Ignacio Turmo Iglesias) and is a modern tool practical, scientifically valid, designed from the teaching experience that allows to assess the skills levels of all students (between 11-13 years old evolutionary).
Its usefulness, its applicative ease, abundance of data provided and the different objectives that can be achieved with this data, make it an instrument well educationally valued.
Is a virtual tool to assess students in a series of competitions, to give information professionals education levels with which students leave primary or reach high school. IACoBà has been designed from the educational experience of teachers for teachers, with the aim of minimizing the effort and maximize the information and usefulness of the data.

IACoBà fast and accurate on the level with students in the skills assessed data are obtained. This information is available at all times, even when they have not yet completed testing. We encourage teachers to meet IACoBá as check their usefulness and ease applicative, the abundance of data provided and the different objectives that can be achieved with this data, so it has become an instrument well educationally valued.
