Abstract
This paper presents the results of a change in methodology when teaching the subject "Transport Engineering" in the BS in Industrial Engineering, in addition to the implementation of a continuous evaluation system. The change in methodology consists in the development of a study procedure for the students and the assessment of student capacity for analysis and synthesis. To implement these developments, a self-study guide has been prepared with a specification of objectives according to the Bloom taxonomy, knowledge required and necessary resources; self-evaluation tests and problems specifically designed towards the learning objectives. Midterm tests have been carried out and their results have been compared with two control groups following the traditional methodology teaching. The statistical analysis of the data collected and the comparison between the different groups indicates that the methodology and the on-line material have been use
