The Master’s degree in Evaluation in Education is organised to train qualified professionals who are capable of designing and developing evaluation processes that are useful to improve the quality of education. Therefore, besides the Fundamentals and the Nature of Evaluation, which are vital for understanding this field of knowledge, the curricular units and inherent tasks are a means of developing knowledge and practices in areas such as Evaluation of Learning, Evaluation of Projects and Programmes, Evaluation of Public Policies and Evaluation of Institutions. The topics of the different curricular units are studied and discussed in an integrated manner, avoiding redundancies. The organisation of the course in the B-Learning format allows the face-to-face sessions (about six) to be privileged spaces for the discussion, analysis and synthesis of the topics that are worked on by the students autonomously, albeit guided and/or supported by teachers.
This course is aimed at a great variety of graduates and professionals who are already working or intend to work in institutions where evaluation has a significant role. This is the case, for example, of teachers at any level of education, senior public administration officials, trainers in any field, managers of training processes, staff from evaluation departments and/or departments of quality of public and private institutions, and staff from human resources departments. This course responds effectively to the growing demand for professionals with skills in the field of evaluation.
