SCREMIN, Greice  y  ISAIA, Silvia Maria de Aguiar. Um estudo sobre funções docentes nas universidades privadas brasileiras e indicadores de qualidade. Educação. UNISINOS [online]. 2012, vol.16, n.01, pp.27-35. ISSN 2177-6210.

The article’s purpose is to analyze the teaching/institutional profile of professors of Brazilian private universities on the basis of the indicators provided by Brazilian government agencies (INEP/MEC). It discusses the related issue of the quality of higher education as proposed by the existing literature (Bertolin, 2007; Davok, 2007; Giolo, 2006). It is a result of a Master’s dissertation developed in accordance with the Education Observatory Project. The approach used to conduct the study was quanti-/qualitative, as the use of this methodology at different stages indicates the possibility of developing different strategies for data analysis, either based on principles of documental analysis or on statistical procedures. As the indicators of the teaching roles are restricted to the labor regime, level of education and gender, they omit the other constitutive elements of the definition of teaching roles provided by INEP. Therefore, the indicators presented in the database offer a partial contribution to the evaluation of the quality of the work done by professors. The authors conclude that these indicators have gaps in the understanding of what is valid in terms of the evaluation of higher education interpreted from a qualitative point of view.
