Se reporta el desarrollo de la evaluación en narraciones orales de 40 niños mexicanos de 3 a 12 años. Se obtuvieron siete narraciones por sujeto a partir de láminas seleccionadas de libros sin texto. Se definió la evaluación narrativa como la expresión de la postura del narrador a partir de comentarios sobre los sucesos y los personajes, y de la expresión de las emociones de los personajes de la historia. Se construyeron categorías evaluativas tomando en cuenta estudios sobre evaluación en la narración y los propios datos. Los resultados muestran que la cantidad de evaluaciones ofrecidas y su nivel de elaboración discursiva varían en el rango de edad estudiado. 2015-05-19T16:11:58Z 2015-05-19T16:11:58Z 2013-10-22 00:00:00 2015-05-19T16:11:58Z info:eu-repo/semantics/article info:eu-repo/semantics/publishedVersion http://revistas.ucr.ac.cr/index.php/actualidades/article/view/8674 http://hdl.handle.net/10669/12687 10.15517/ap.v27i115.8674 en Actualidades en Psicología Vol. 27 Núm. 115 2013 15-30 application/pdf
