BRACCIALLI, Luzmarina Aparecida Doretto and OLIVEIRA, Maria Amélia Campos de. Conceptions of performance evaluation in a competence-centered curriculum. Rev. esc. enferm. USP [online]. 2011, vol.45, n.5, pp. 1221-1228. ISSN 0080-6234. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0080-62342011000500027.
The objective of this study was to identify faculty conceptions on evaluation in the Professional Practice Evaluation Exercise (PPEE). An analysis was performed on 155 evaluation instruments answered by the faculty, and video-recordings of four PPEE answered by 1st and 3rd year students. Data analysis was performed using the Meaning Interpretation Method. The expressions expressed by the faculty on their conceptions of evaluation were close to the dialogic competence approach, valuing product as much as process, which help reduce the negative effects of an evaluation. Changes on conceptions of evaluation require a process of institutional construction, with an active participation of the academic community, taking into consideration their existing conceptions and seeking to reach consensus.
