This article has the objective to approach the different functions and applications of the evaluation. To read more click here: Larry Ellison. The education and the evaluation are indissociveis terms, therefore it must be led in account that the evaluation is of utmost importance in the educative process, therefore is through avaliativos instruments that we can follow the development of the process teach-learning. 2.A successive Practical avaliativa Existe a great contradiction enters practical of some educators and real purpose in evaluating. Many professors use the note as test of authoritarianism or as penalty for some lack, using it to make with that the pupils give attention in the lesson or are quiet: ‘ ‘ he looks at, the day of the test is chegando’ ‘ , ‘ ‘ one of these questions that I am explaining can fall in prova’ ‘ , distilling in homeopticas doses its power to disapprove or to promote, thus associating the act to evaluate to a laborious process. With this, the students start to imagine that evaluation is a mountain out of a molehill, capsizing one it tortures the day of the test. Frequently the term to evaluate is associated with others as, examination, note, failure, promotion and repetncia. As it affirms Hoffmann (2002): we have of desvelar theoretical contradictions and mistakes of this practical, constructing one ‘ ‘ ressignificado’ ‘ for the evaluation and desmitificando it of ghosts, a past still very en vogue. The efficiency of the work of the professor is closely on to the results reached for the pupils, therefore these results are a mirror of the effort of the professor in promoting certain transformations in the pupils. In result of a new pedagogical conception, with the support of studious, theoretical and educators, the avaliativo process, with intention of simple testagem, exerting a classificatria, bureaucratic function, without the intention of transformations, comes fraquejando. Assuming new dimensions, becoming ampler and compromised.
