This article examines the social representations of assessment procedures built by teachers of early years of Basic Education Network's Hall of the city of Recife-PE. The benchmark as the basis for the study was the Theory of Social Representations Moscovici (1978, 2003) and Jodelet (2001) . The study was conducted with 20 teachers. The semi-structured interview was used as a procedure for collection. The material was dealt with the support of the Analysis of Content. The results indicate the existence of a social representation that is being carried out by the teachers with diverse evaluation instruments in order to recover a significant memory of learning of students. This knowledge, however, is being used by teachers in a diffuse and less consistent way in their evaluation practices. Our results suggest the need for research that will examine these findings mores carefully.
