Since the promulgation of the 1988 Constitution, which established the duty of the State to the education of children aged 0 to 6 years, various laws and documents, and research, have been published to define and guide the practices to be developed in Early Childhood Education, including assessment practices. Through this research project, at the level of Scientific Initiation, we intend to investigate the knowledge that kindergarten teachers have regarding the evaluation in kindergartens and preschools. This is a project linked to a larger study in progress, through which investigates knowledge of Early Childhood Education professionals about the various laws and documents published since the 1980s.
