We present a descriptive and interpretive research, developed in order to explain the results presented in the reports of national and international educational assessment and to identify and agree on actions for improvement. Different qualitative and quantitative methodologies were joined in our study design, in which both approaches were combined in a single procedure for mixed research. Different opinions from the agents involved were compared and complemented, through Delphi Method. The mixed methodology favoured the construction of the knowledge necessary to understand the reality analysed and allowed in the same study to address different paradigmatic purposes. The Delphi Method allowed different educational agents (politicians, union representatives, education counsellors, researchers, families, teachers and students) to be included in the same discussion, which helped build and understand reality in a more global way.
