Keywords: evaluation, acreditation, curriculum, CONEAU, quality, standards, perspective
AbstractThe creation of The Comisión Nacional de Evaluación y Acreditación Universitaria (CONEAU) in 1995 opens a chapter about the evaluation processes that, 20 years from its functioning, allows to move along in the study and analysis from an evaluation perspective and accreditation that does not base its developments, or its evolution, or the increasing levels of quality achieved in the system, in the elaboration of university rankings, or in the taking of exams for teachers and students. The history of institutionalization of this process can be related from the initial political decision, the first times of rejection, going through the thoroughness of the organization and the development of tools and procedures, the self-assessment processes to the present where it is possible to raise achievements and pending issues. It is in the context of a story about this experience that the question about the curricular changes that these processes may have generated taking the idea of perspective raised by Alicia de Alba in his text Curriculum: crisis, myth and perspective (1995) and thus return to think about how to express curricularly the common and the diverse in the processes of university education.
