O que é avaliar? reconstrução de práticas e conceções de avaliação

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review



The evaluation of learning is an integral part of curriculum development used for the regulation and measurement of intentional learning in the course of teaching. However, the practices that prevail in schools, with their traditional, organizational, mechanistic and uniformistic "grammar", in place since the 19th century, separate the ways, spaces and times intended for teaching and assessment, due to the concepts inherited of teaching and learning, which are inadequate. This text reviews the concept of evaluation, including an ongoing project of formation research in a Portuguese school. This project, coordinated by the authors, focuses on the reflection and improvement carried out by teachers regarding their ways of developing and measuring learning evaluation, according to progressively assessed criteria agreed on among peers, whose intermediate data are presented here.
