TRAVASSOS, Rômulo  and  MOURAO, Luciana. ENADE results and Psychology education assessment. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2017, vol.16, n.3, pp. 318-327. ISSN 1677-0471.

The objective of the study was to present an evaluation of Psychology education based on a documentary analysis of National Student Performance Examination (ENADE) results in the 2006, 2009 and 2012 editions. Results include 57,687 Psychology course graduates and show an increase in the percentage of students participating in scientific initiation, monitoring and extension activities, but also a decrease in average scores in the exam's general components and, markedly, on the specific component (falling from 52.7 in 2006 to 37.6 in 2012). It is striking that the performance of students over these years has fallen more in public higher education institutions than in private institutions. These results denounce many weaknesses in Brazilian Psychology education and should serve as an alert for those involved in teaching Psychology, as well as to the institutions representing the category.

Keywords : Competencies; National Student Performance Exam - ENADE; Psychology education.
