HORTALE, Virginia Alonso. CAPES evaluation model: desirable and necessary, but incomplete. Cad. Saúde Pública [online]. 2003, vol.19, n.6, pp. 1837-1840. ISSN 0102-311X. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-311X2003000600027.
Seeking to contribute to the improvement of evaluation criteria in the public health graduate studies program, this article presents the main characteristics identified by foreign observers during the 2001 program evaluation of the Brazilian government research support agency CAPES (Coordinating Body for Training University-Level Personnel) and presents some critical observations on the criteria used to evaluate the quality of teaching in graduate studies programs. These comments were based on recent trends in other countries.
