MANCEBO, Deise  and  ROCHA, Marisa Lopes da. Evaluation in the higher education and teacher's work. Interações [online]. 2002, vol.7, n.13, pp. 55-75. ISSN 1413-2907.

This paper presents the results of an investigation that attempted to analyze the evaluation in higher education in Brazil in the last 20 years, and the repercussions of these practices in the teachers' work, throughout the analysis of a corpus which included official documents, the legislation of the period and the papers published in 27 national scientific journals of education. The analysis of this documentation proved that, in the Brazilian university, it can be found multiple practices of evaluation, giving rise to a scenery of tensions among different conceptions. It was verified that the hegemony in this field has fallen to governmental organisms, in the context of the managerial reform of the Brazilian state, throughout meticulous legislation. At the end, some effects of evaluation in teacher's work are discussed, especially the new definitions of the social context of the knowledge, the changes that are affecting the roles of the teachers, the new formulations generated in the institutional profile and in the own goals of the university.
