Pedagogical Supervision at Cape Verdean Legislation - The Development of a Scale to its First Psychometric Evidence

Euclides Manuel Lopes Furtado [3]

Abstract: In this article, we focus on pedagogical supervision, which is one of the competencies of SPs in Cape Verde, having as anchors Decree-Law n.? 8/2019 and Decree-Law n.? 9/2019 - both published on February 22 ? for the design and description of an explanatory model with four factors. We understand that after 4 years of publication of these diplomas, it was already justified to analyse whether the guidelines contained in these diplomas have contributed to improving the practice of pedagogical supervision, at a time when schools' biggest challenge is to promote inclusion. The article describes the process of developing a performance assessment instrument and the results of a pilot study with 66 teachers working in a school group, some of whom are also subject coordinators and/or class directors. The design is mixed, although the quantitative approach stands out more, since the instrument developed and applied is a questionnaire survey, which includes only closed questions, including those referring to professional variables and the 32 items that make up the construct. Among the findings, we highlight: (i) except for some limitations to be overcome in future studies, involving more expressive samples, the validity and reliability of the instrument were confirmed; (ii) teachers who are part of the pedagogical supervision team do not have training in any of the areas required by legislation and never participate in training on inclusive education and/or the use of digital technologies; (iii) the two diplomas brought extraordinary gains to the exercise of the pedagogical supervision.
