Agenda 2030 focuses on the sustainability of education. Objective: In the impossibility of teaching in person due to the public health measures implemented to stop the COVID-19 pandemic, an attempt was made to evaluate in the e-learning system: the cooperation and assertiveness levels in students and the correlation between these variables. Method: This is a quantitative, cross-sectional study involving 329 higher Portuguese education students, using beyond a demographic questionnaire and two scales: EAGC and EAGA. Results:The sample mean of EAGC=31.57 (± 6.59 sd) reveals an average capacity for cooperation and in the EAGA=30 (± 5.9 sd) also reveals an average assertive competence who attend higher education. It was verified that there is a weak positive correlation (rs=0.125) with strong statistical significance (p-value<0.01) between both scales.Students excel in assertiveness. Conclusion: The present scales may prove to be a contribution to sustainability in education, particularly in periods of confinement and emergency.
