From the documentational approach perspective, both teacher file and student worksheet played a significant role in teachers' documentation work by providing them with tools helping them envisage a possible classroom implementation of the resource.
The teachers could transform the questionnaire into an instrument enabling them to realize a deep and efficient analysis of the resource, which constitutes an important part of their documentational genesis.
The outcomes of this experiment show that the two processes, instrumental genesis concerned with the questionnaire and documentational genesis concerned with resources, are intertwined since, on the one hand, using the questionnaire is supposed to frame the resource analysis and to help teachers choose the most appropriate ones, and on the other hand, the resource analysis contributes to shaping the questionnaire usage.
We could thus observe only a part of teachers' documentational work with resources corresponding to their selection (among a restricted number of resources) and analysis.
The next step of the teachers' documentational work consists in choosing resources, among those selected in the previous phase, that will be reviewed by using the online questionnaire.
