Professional and Technical Education (EPT) are teaching modalities which contributes to the educational qualification improvement of a large Brazilian population portion. Professional and Technological Education Department (SETEC), linked to the Brazilian Ministry of Education, is responsible for the evaluation of public education policies. For this reason, agreements with Federal Institutions (IFs), State and Municipal Education Departments (SEDUCs) are made to carry out course offers that are financed with federal resources. The signing of these agreements, which contains the offering institutions with their courses and students, is carried out by the National Information System for Professional and Technological Education (Sistec).

The National Education Plan (PNE 2014-2024 / Law 13.005 of 25/06/2014) guarantees the monitoring and evaluation of these offered courses. Thus, SETEC invested in the Monitoring and Course Evaluation System (SAAS), which is developed by researchers from University X (anonymized). SAAS includes several courses from EPT that are evaluated by teachers, coordinators and students. Among these courses, MedioTec stands out, a modality that allows students to attend regular high school while taking a technical course.

In addition to SAAS, SETEC and its collaborators developed a platform, called Nilo Peçanha, which extracts data from Sistec and disseminates various information related to professors, students and technical-administrative staff.

The objective of this research is to relate data from course evaluations on SAAS to the indicators that are presented on the Nilo Peçanha platform. The proposed research focuses on the analysis of financial indicators associated with the quality evaluation of courses offered by EPT. It is intended to identify the extent to which these financial indicators can be associated with quality indicators.
