COSTA, Anderson Gonçalves; VIDAL, Eloísa Maia  and  VIEIRA, Sofia Lerche. Large-scale evaluation in Brazil: between federative coordination and the ethos of the evaluative State. Rev. Educ. Questão [online]. 2019, vol.57, n.51, e-15806.  Epub Sep 13, 2019. ISSN 1981-1802.

The article analyzes the relationship between federative coordination and the evaluating State and the ways in which the central government has used collaborative agreements to promote evaluation and accountability measures on subnational units. It is characterized as an exploratory research in which are used as procedures the bibliographic and documentary survey with a qualitative approach. In a reading of the educational legislation, it presents the pacts and the strategies of the Union towards states and municipalities that have made the evaluation a path of intergovernmental relations. It concludes that the relationship between evaluating State and federative coordination is being forged insofar as the evaluation systems are signified by the particular features to a new function of the State, in a scenario of decentralization in which the control of the Union makes possible the federative coordination from results-based agreements, large-scale evaluations, quality of education, public transparency and accountability.

Keywords : Evaluating State; Federative coordination; Regime of collaboration; Evaluation system.
