LACERDA, Leo Lynce Valle de; FERRI, Cássia  y  DUARTE, Blaise Keniel da Cruz. SINAES: evaluation, accountability and performance. Avaliação (Campinas) [online]. 2016, vol.21, n.3, pp.975-992. ISSN 1414-4077.

The study examines the praxis of SINAES, the first national assessment system of higher education in Brazil, comparing your principles with operationalization developed under the criterion of institutional efficiency in achieving their end product: the undergraduate student. The basis of the system is discussed: the performance of students in the national exam, the external assessment of undergraduate courses and the process of institutional self-assessment. The performance logic of the indices created by the system is analyzed. Then, it is a discussion about which provided the system in your original document, in relation to the evaluation and regulation processes, and what actually happened in practice: an inceptive accountability based performance test model. It discusses the minimization of the evaluation and the overlap of the examination compared to other processes. Investigates the premise that the exam is used as main input for the regulation to be generalizable to the entire Brazilian educational context. It concludes that the diversity of Brazilian institutions precludes the generalization of the examination and the use of this as an end product.
