evaluation, diagnosis, evaluation instruments, decision making


This article allowed identifying procedures used for diagnostic evaluation in the “Mercedes” Private Education Unit of the city of Calceta, Ecuador, as well as verifying whether these are adequate, relevant and carried out according to the reality of the educational institution by teachers and if you intend to analyze the student in an integral way, not only academic. To support this research, the exploratory method of documentary analysis was used for which bibliographic sources were reviewed. The instrument designed for data collection was the survey where results were obtained that concluded that teachers have limitations regarding the conception of diagnostic evaluation because they consider that the contents are not spaces for continuous learning, it does not meet the different styles of learning to determine what need for academic improvement can be applied to each student although the results of a diagnostic evaluation are taken into account for decision-making focused on improving procedures inside and outside the classroom.
