In the university context, the learning of Operational Research presents difficulties that can be overcome using active methodological strategies and technological tools. The experience of a cooperative learning activity is presented, implemented with the support of an LMS; which serves as a continuous assessment mechanism, generates a bank of questions, facilitates feedback on learning and promotes the acquisition of specific and transversal competences that will result in better professional performance. The students elaborated questions, justified answers and selected, arguing why, those they considered most appropriate to include in their evaluation. The administration of these activities was done through Moodle. The students perceived positively the cooperative work and considered the activity as a support to face-to-face teaching that transformed the evaluation into a motivating experience. The approval results went up from 72% to 95%, the ratings were more homogeneous and the group average rose from 12.25 to 13.15 points.
