OLIVEIRA, Katya Luciane de et al. Scientific production in psychological evaluation in the school context. Psicol. esc. educ. [online]. 2007, vol.11, n.2, pp. 239-251. ISSN 1413-8557.

This paper analyses the scientific production in psychological evaluation in the school context published in 234 articles from seven scientific indexed periodicals. The analysis was carried out according to some metascientific criteria such as: authorship, thematic, discourse, and exam of the different types of evaluation, to name a few. Results evinced not only a greater concentration of publications regarding to educational psychology evaluation in certain journals, but also an increase of these types of studies recently as well. It was also found that most of the authors were females and that psychological tests were used both in a variety of contexts and with diverse purposes. Psychometric instruments were the most frequently employed. Interviews and observations were also used. Projective techniques were reported only in 2.3% of the investigations. It is recommended that similar studies be conducted in order to better monitor the expanding area of psychological evaluation in Brazil.
