This paper aims to illustrate an automated system developed to give formative and personalized feedback to teachers in training. It is an expert system (Paviotti, Rossi & Zarka, 2012) that uses concrete examples, cases and scenarios to guide the engaged learners (Leake, 1996). In this regard, this system is able to create questionnaires, deliver them, collect and analyze data, send feedback to the participants to provide information about their beliefs and behaviors about teaching and learning processes. Far from constituting an assessment of teaching practices, the automated feed- back demonstrates its usefulness in identifying teachers’ mindframes at an early stage, so as to be able to implement more specific and personalized training. This allows its application to be extended to further training areas as well as constituting an effective approach for need analysis and a preparatory action for numerous training activities (guided discussion with experts, observation on practice, modeling, etc.).
