SILVA, Anne Patricia Pimentel Nascimento da; SOUZA, Roberta Teixeira de  and  VASCONCELLOS, Vera Maria Ramos de. The state of the art or the state of knowledge. Educação. Porto Alegre [online]. 2020, vol.43, n.3, e37452. ISSN 1981-2582.

The article begins with a theoretical discussion of what are the critical reviews of the modes of production in the field of education recognized as “State of Art” and “State of Knowledge”. They are studies that systematize what was produced during a period of time and area of coverage, observing traces left in the historical path of their productions. These terms are commonly used as synonyms in various investigations, despite the existing differences. In the second part is presented a balance of what was produced between 2003 and 2018, in four graduate programs of one of the state universities in the country, with tradition in research in education. We analyzed 54 productions (11 theses and 43 dissertations) referring to Early Childhood Education, revealing their findings and gaps that may be filled in future research. The text seeks to demarcate the congruences and divergences of the conceptions presented and explain the paths outlined in the process of knowledge construction in the area.

Keywords : state of art; state of knowledge; early childhood education.
