The objective of this study is to analyze comparatively the curriculum
policies produced recently in Brazil and Portugal. The focus is on the
term, competency, and emphasizes approximations as well as distancing
from the concept's meanings. The analysis is based essentially on
addressing the continuous policy cycle of Stephen Ball. We conclude that
the differences between appropriations in the two countries are derived
above all from the action of researchers in science teaching and the
curriculum, and from the local meaning of the analyzed term.
