The Republic of Ecuador, and in particular the State Technical University of Quevedo (UTEQ), demands the training of highly qualified professionals, according to the demands of society. In this context, pre-professional practice constitutes an essential means to achieve these expectations, based on taking into account the Pedagogical Model by Competences. Faced with these challenges, in Ecuador, the training of competent professionals committed to social development is today a necessity. Training graduates capable of facing the challenges of technological development in their jobs is a priority, both for Higher Education and for the entities that employ qualified human capital in the country. It concludes by stating that it constitutes a challenge for the UTEQ, the conception and application of results that arise in the area of ​​Pedagogical Sciences, to favor an adequate development of the evaluation by competencies of pre-professional practices
