The research titled Evaluative processes in cultural mediation - The reflexive position of focused educational assessment practices undertaken for visits by school groups to art museums.
The theoretical part of the research the intersection of the fields of education and art education, especially with regard to non-formal education held in exhibition spaces. This paper presents results of field research that brings qualitative data from observation of some cultural institutions of the city of São Paulo, Brazil.
For the research, interviews were conducted in 2010 with the coordinators responsible for educational programs in four different spaces, trying to recognize the evaluation practices used, the positioning on the issue of assessment, and the strategies employed in this sense.
The museums that were selected for analysis where the ones where it was possible to gather the same objects of study for reading research: a report of the interview conducted with the coordinators of educational programs, and the assessment questionnaire applied to the different subjects involved in cultural mediation that were provided at the meetings. Thus, the analysis will be made on the assessment procedures of the spaces Paço das Artes, Museu de Arte de Sao Paulo, Museu Lasar Segall and Pinacoteca do Estado de Sao Paulo.
The article proposes a reading of the evaluation topics that are proposed in the questionnaires and forms. The analysis of these forms of assessment will be made in a comparative manner, adopting as a view the individual who is responding to the evaluation. Thus will be considered three different subjects that act on a visit to the museum: the cultural mediator / museum educator, the teacher who is responsible for the group, and the student.
The reading of the data obtained will be made separately for each space, with the presentation of the work done in the institution, so that a comparative examination of the questionnaires used by educational sectors can be conducted.
