This work presents results from a research on the School Learning Evaluation Program (Programa de Avaliação da Aprendizagem Escolar – Paae) implemented at the Public State Education System of Minas Gerais, Brazil. This study involved a literature and documental review, and the application of a structured questionnaire to high school History teachers. As to the organization of the article, it is divided in the following sections: description and analysis of the implementation process of Paae, in the period from 2005 to 2016; specificities of the program; methodology used; and the critical analysis of the following categories: evaluation, curriculum and teacher practice. The results revealed an asymmetry between discourse and practice. Even though most teachers use Paae, it has not yet achieved the results expected by its managers and idealizers in terms of its role as an evaluation public policy.
