Resumen: The intent of this chapter is to demonstrate current possibilities of online assessment and intervention systems for addressing the problems of university students in coping with maladjusted achievement emotions (stress, anxiety, burnout, etc.). Through an online tool, the Educational Psychologist can provide an individualized online selfassessment system for each student. The system responds in real time with behavioral strategies for self-help and improvement. In our experience, this online self-help system has proved to be useful and effective in detecting and offering a first response to mental health problems associated with academic stress at university, and it can be extrapolated to other fields and uses by other mental health professionals.
