This study focuses on evaluation as a challenge of higher education, approached from the perceptions of students at a private university in the north of the city of Quito-Ecuador, carried out in the academic period 2020-2021. It is an exploratory descriptive research that uses mixed methods and approaches the subject from the qualitative-interpretative paradigm with the aim of integrating data and understanding the perceptions of students around the evaluations of which they are participants. The target population was 250 students who, after consenting to their participation, provided information through a questionnaire with a Likert-type scale. The aspects analyzed were: objectives, factors, importance, validity of the evaluation in the teaching-learning processes. It is concluded that the population under study perceives evaluation as synonymous with measurement and assignment of qualifications to be promoted to a higher level and reflects limited learning. However, they consider it important to be applied in the training process.
