Abstract
In this paper, an objective analysis of the continuous assessment under the application of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) in four courses of different Schools at the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM) for more than three years was carried out. Our work hypothesis (the success of students following continuous assessment would be greater than those following the traditional final assessment) has been confirmed in three out of the four subjects analysed. Thus, the percentage of passed students increased from 55.6 to 85.3% when the continuous assessment was applied and the average grades increased 1.62 points. This better performance was shown regardless of the type of subject or degree, as well as of the amount and sort of assessment tests.
