Abstract

One important question in education management is the best way to conduct institutional evaluation. This relevant process that helps the institution in its self-knowledge is essential to verify if the institution goals are being achieved and to plan quality improvements. One important matter to be considered is the time between the forms filling by the stakeholders and the reports of the results. If this time is too long the results has a minor impact in the actions that will bring benefits to people that are involved in the process. To deal with this matter a software support is mandatory. This work presents a effort of the institution to establish an evaluation process supported by web-based software. The process was extensively discussed among students, lecturers, coordinators and principals in order to create forms and questions that best fit for each type of stakeholder involved in the process. This work presents the on-line indicators of the institution that are being used to speed up management actions.
