Education in Values has been attracting great social and educational interest in Spain for some time, to the point of being present as a specific content in the school curricula at all educational levels, in order to respond to various educational demands. At a time of intense social unrest due to the incidence of coronaviruses around the world, this paper proposes a look at the subject “Social and Civic Values” - its existence, practice and, above all, evaluation -, in Elementary and Middle School in the Autonomous Community of Galicia (Spain).
After a brief address to the curricular context of the subject Social and Civic Values, as well as its context of existance, we seek by means of documentary analysis to identify the form, conception and methodology in which the legislation itself proposes the evaluation. Therefore, we chose to conduct semi-structured interviews with teachers of this subject in Primary Education, using open-ended questions in order to collect reliable qualitative data, intending to discover narratives about how this discipline is applied and how the learning of children and adolescents is assessed in these localities. Then, by having the curricular information previously disposed and the analysis of the teachers' discourse/narrative, we seek to understand their conception of assessment, as well as the strategies and instruments used by them to assess and evaluate student learning in this subject.
