Abstract

The declaration of national sanitary emergency due to the irrepressible advance of COVID-19 generated government responses of obligatory social isolation, suspending activities that involve the gathering of people from March 2020. In order not to truncate educational activities, the use of virtual platforms and electronic media was arranged as a remote alternative of teaching-learning interaction. Universities were tasked with implementing technology supports and training teaching staff in the use of such tools. This process made it possible to visualize the deficiencies of the public university system that warn of potential problems in the execution period, and may lead to a future questioning of the quality of vocational training due to the fact that the evaluation competencies have not been debated and neither have they been defined. those that will be prioritized in the training phase. This research aims to reflect on this process, framed in the current context, pointing out the evaluation challenges that should be implemented as the final stage of evaluating the achievement indicators proposed in the curricular plans of a professional training multidisciplinarity.
