This paper presents a structured set of 17 Design Patterns (DP for short). These DPs target the design of learning systems that assess learners while solving problems, for example problems in mathematics, logic or programming. Learners' assessment is a three step approach: first collect and analyse data while a learner solves a problem, second overview of a learner's activity across a set of exercises and third overview of the activity of a group of learners on a set of exercises. This set of DPs has emerged as a way of capitalizing on the work done by the co-authors while sharing their experience in this area. We show that these DPs do account for other experiences taken from the literature. In our opinion, writing sets of DPs is a way to facilitate communication in pluridisciplinary teams for the design of e-learning systems, to create a research memory, and to training and education in the field. The present set is a step in that direction.
