Abstract: In this paper we describe the DeepTest tool, which is intended to reinforce the conceptual learning of any subject by means of interactive exercises for the detection of incorrect texts. DeepTest can be used through Internet. The generic aspects of the tool are analyzed, and a first report on conclusions from the use of the tool by a group of students and teachers is presented. The main conclusion is that DeepTest can be used effectively in assessment tasks and its use is very simple and intuitive.
