It's called educational diagnosis to exercise that allows evaluating the skills, attitudes and knowledge of students and teachers to participate in a process of teaching and learning. The objective is that educators base their actions so that it can be determined if they coincide with the pedagogical requirements of today.

The development of an educational diagnosis is intended to analyze the quality of education. It's a procedure that allows the description, classification and explanation of the actions of different actors within the framework of the school. With the educational diagnosis made, it's possible to make informed decisions related to the educational field.

As in other types of diagnosis, this process begins with the collection of information. Then this information should be analyzed to favor the decision making and the necessary interventions. Finally, the educational diagnosis itself can be evaluated according to the effects it produced.

Specifically, we can establish that the phases of educational diagnosis are planning, exploration, analysis and solutions.

In general, in an educational diagnosis, at least five variables are considered: the educator (the teacher), the student, the program (what is taught), the methodology (how it's taught) and the framework ( the course, the institution, the community, etc.). Thus the panorama offered by the diagnosis is broad and provides a global perspective.

It's also important to know that there are several types of educational diagnoses, among which the following stand out:

- The individual, who, as his name indicates, focuses on a specific student.
- The global-general, which is carried out to know in depth different issues and aspects related to a special student.
- The group, which comes to be done when it comes to studying in depth the problems that affect a specific group of students.
- The analytical, which is undertaken when a student has a problem with their learning.
