In this work we present a methodology to perform peer-assessment activities in courses of the first years of the engineering curriculum whose evaluation is based mainly on the resolution of problems, and it is convenient that the tasks to be evaluated are carried out in class in a supervised way. The aim of the project we present here was to implement a peer-to-peer correction tool, ensuring that the student's work is done individually in class and leaving the peer-assessment process off-class, using, in each of the phases of the activity, the following set of computer applications: auto-multiple-choice open source program, LibreOffice Calc, google-forms applications, google mail and home-made shell scripts in a Linux platform. We apply this methodology to a workshop offered to students in order to help them to prepare a final exam in the Degree of Civil and Territorial Engineering (U.P.M.). The attendance was voluntary and did not affect the final grade. The results show that the population of students who attended the workshop obtained better grades than those who did not attend, increasing both the average grade and the percentage of passes. This methodology of support for students has proven to be a useful tool to facilitate the acquisition of competences associated with an engineering subject whose evaluation lies largely in the resolution of problems.
