NAVARRO, Gabriela Ibeth e RUEDA BELTRAN, Mario. Learning assessment and student's opinion in two degree courses of education sciences in Mexico and France. Perfiles educativos [online]. 2009, vol.31, n.126, pp. 30-55. ISSN 0185-2698.
The assessment actions have achieved an important position in the reform processes of the educational systems worldwide, partly because they are seen as a suitable resort to guarantee the quality of teaching. The internationalization of knowledge has brought about the expansion of specialized knowledge deriving from the diverse educational assessment practices that have contributed to put into effect some modifications to the programs, the teaching-learning processes and the conceptual debate. This article proposes an analysis of the opinions expressed by students enrolled in the degree courses of Education Sciences and Paedagogy at the Paris X University (Nanterre) and the National Autonomous University of Mexico (Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, Mexico City), in order to obtain an approach to how the daily assessment practices of learning established in both institutions are considered, keeping distance with regard to the orientation of some available theories. This intimate knowledge of how learning is assessed has as purpose to attract the researchers' and university teachers' attention to increase their systemic knowledge about the matter and improve its application.
