SANTOS, Marisa Aparecida Pereira et al. To evaluate the methodological project: is it possible?. Avaliação (Campinas) [online]. 2011, vol.16, n.2, pp. 445-462. ISSN 1414-4077. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1414-40772011000200011.
The aim of this study is to report the results of evaluation of the Syllabus Pedagogical Project, implemented in the beginning of 2008, in undergraduate programs at Universidade Sagrado Coração (USC), located in Bauru, State of São Paulo. With this intent, a sample of the performance of first year USC Pedagogy, History, Architecture and Urban Design and Computer Science students, who used the Syllabus methodology for one year, was analyzed. The analysis referred to questions of general training of ENADE/2008. The analyzed data apply to the comparison of USC students performance with that of students of the same programs at other institutions, like Colleges or Universities, located in Bauru or around it, and also with the average of students of these programs in Brazil. It also analyzed the results of an internal assessment done by the University in 2009 about the implementation of this new methodology of teaching and learning. With respect to performance issues of ENADE/2008, it has been observed that the best results were obtained by students of USC. Moreover, the students of Pedagogy and History, who performed best in ENADE/2008, among the programs evaluated, were those who indicated in the evaluation of the methodology, the highest level of participation in reading and Prior Activities recommended by teachers. The results suggest that the Syllabus methodology has made a positive impact on students' learning.
