This paper presents the assessment as an aspect, sufficiently important for the education in general, that also it must be thought and be discuss in front of the Distance Education. Thus, from our experience as professors and having for context a course fulfilled totally at distance, we analyzed some interactions that occurred during the course, which was developed having as north the constructionist educational theory. We also used this theory to elaborate our ideas regarding the character of the evaluation front of a formative conception, in an environment of Distance Education, which valued all the types of interaction. Then, we united the Constructionism with the Formative Evaluation, which aims to perfect the learning process of the pupil instead of measure what this learned.
