Systematization of an Assessment Proposal in Theoretical - Practical Subjects for a Teachers’ Training Program in Electronics, Technology and Computer Science


Objectives: To propose and systematize an alternative assessment for 4 disciplinary areas that link the theoretical - practical character of a training program addressed to electronics, technology and computer science teachers. Methods: A descriptive study was used as methodology in this work. In that way, the instruments used to collect information are data formats and reports submitted by the students who belong to the areas of study. The information collected is qualitative. The systematization considered the alternatives of assessment used by teachers in the areas of Electronic Design, Digital Design, Circuit Analysis and Mechanical Physics. Findings: The proposed assessment option for these areas, involves three training sections: 1. The theoretical orientation which is mediated by questions that guide the student learning process, 2. Some virtual laboratory practices are proposed to connect the theoretical orientation. These practices are supported with new guiding questions, giving depth to the topics in development. 3. The real laboratory, which complements the theoretical and the virtual laboratory. Each laboratory activity is supported with new questions that guide the learning process and return to the items which are expected to be discovered by the student in the two previous activities. Application: To articulate the activities, a methodology of teaching by oriented research is used. This type of research is strengthened under the guidance of the learning. This orientation is mainly done throughout questions that are originated in each activity for the areas and the topics proposed in the research. It is important to highlight that the results can be generalized in other areas that keep relation with the investigation, as well as to other fields and disciplines related to the engineering.
