The present study was devised in the context of the participatory pedagogies, more specifically the Pedagogy-in-Participation (cf. Formosinho & Oliveira-Formosinho, 2008; Oliveira-Formosinho & Formosinho, 2001, 2013a, 2016 and Oliveira-Formosinho, 2016a) and is targeted at the development of processes of (re)construction of the evaluation from the reconstruction of the pedagogical documentation and the educational planning. With this study, I try to establish a path of (re)construction that makes evaluation accessible to children, parents, family, and the educational team itself. The questions asked seek to describe, interpret and comprehend in depth the role of pedagogical documentation in educational planning, assessment and how it reveals children's progress in learning. Throughout this process I include contributions from children that lead to a deep and detailed understanding of the process of (re)construction of educational documentation, educational planning and evaluation. From the methodological point of view, this study uses a qualitative approach and is developed through a case study (cf. Stake, 2012) by processes of praxiological research (cf. Formosinho & Oliveira-Formosinho, 2012; Oliveira-Formosinho, 2016a; Pascal & Bertram, 2012), focusing on the investigation of pedagogical praxis. The investigative process is based on ethical and deontological principles (cf. Bertram et al., 2016). The confidentiality of the collected data is guaranteed and the children's privacy is guaranteed, in order to preserve their personal data. The study shows that pedagogical documentation as a study of the processes and achievements of children's learning supports the construction of inclusive, democratic and participatory planning and evaluation. It makes real the exercise of the rights of children and adults and the experience of participation, democracy and equity.
