Educational assessment prospects and challenges in Brazil are focus of online seminar
Fundação Getulio Vargas’ Sao Paulo School of Economics (FGV EESP), through its Center for Learning on Evaluation and Results for Brazil and Lusophone Africa (CLEAR), together with the Global Evaluation Initiative (GEI), are holding an online seminar called “Education Assessment Prospects and Challenges in Brazil.” This public event will take place on February 14, at 6 pm, on FGV’s YouTube channel.
The speakers will be Professor Fernanda Estevan of FGV EESP and Guilherme Lichand, assistant professor at the University of Zurich. The moderator will be Professor André Portela of FGV EESP.
The COVID-19 pandemic, which started almost three years ago, has had consequences for Brazilian education, including negative shocks for students’ learning and school trajectory, in addition to deepening educational inequalities. The new state and federal administrations have the opportunity to recover from these losses, improve education evaluation models and invest in the use of evidence in the formulation of education policies.
The event will look at the role the National Education System’s implementation will have, by integrating the education policies of different federal entities, in the process of recovering learning and combating educational inequalities.
The seminar will examine improvements to the National Basic Education Assessment System (SAEB) and discuss what state assessments are needed to improve Brazilian education in the coming decades. It will also analyze how government entities can use assessments to improve the quality of educational provision and guarantee the constitutional right to education, as well as addressing the future of the Basic Education Development Index (IDEB) and how the current educational context and inequalities can be incorporated into it.
