In the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) curricula are mainly organized around the development of competences where assessment plays a central role. Contents and processes have to produce a useful and factual knowledge about students’ competence level, recognising their needs and developing their competences (Dodero y col., 2009). In this context, students’ active participation in their own assessment is essential. Therefore, teachers need to plan this participation and introduce it into the teaching and learning process. Interactive and dialogical asynchronous contribution tools (IDACT), such as forums, blogs and wikis, are an exceptional resource to develop generic competences as communication, discussion and negotiation. They can also promote both students’ involvement in the assessment process and students’ interaction with instructors.
