The aim of this paper was to interrelate the administrative and pedagogical practices identified in municipal elementary schools that can contribute to student performance in Prova Brasil. To that end, it was applied a methodology in which the qualitative and quantitative approaches in an integrated and collaborative way to study the school efficiency are used. First, it is applied the Data Envelopment Analysis, which, in its quantitative character, ranks schools in efficient and inefficient compared to the study group. In the second stage, qualitative, multiple case studies are conducted in these schools, to understand its internal processes. It is expected, with the results, can contribute to the alignment of practices aiming at assisting in student performance, school management and, above all, provide improvements in the quality of education.
