SCHOOL SUCCESS: THE VOICE OF THE STUDENTS

Teresa Jesus Correia Paulino Santos, Maria Palmira Carlos Alves

Abstract


Schools should guarantee that all students have the necessary conditions for an educational success, being the learning assessment the most determinant element. We present some results of a qualitative study, carried out in a Portuguese group of schools, with students in the third cycle of basic education, whose main objective is to understand their perspectives on the conditions that school offers to achieve success. A semi-structured interview was used to collect data. After ensuring that ethical questions were being respected, 18 students were interviewed. Data was analyzed using content analysis. The results highlight that the sense of belonging, the motivation, the interaction between students and teachers, as well as assessment tools and criteria are determinant elements for school success.
