In recent years, there has been a signifi­cant increase in international debates, re­search and socio-educational programmes focusing on youth empowerment. One of the main issues with this concept is related to how it is measured and evaluated. Evaluating so­cio-educational actions and projects is crucial in order to design, implement and improve educational practices that help young people to empower themselves. This article presents the process of building and validating a ru­bric, within the framework of the HEBE Pro­ject, for the evaluation of youth empowerment actions and projects. The methodological pro­cess consists of three phases: (1) Design of the rubric; (2) Expert validation by 17 practition­ers from different fields, 3 experts in evalua­tion and 5 young people; (3) And a compari­son by means of a pilot test with 20 projects or socio-educational services aimed at youth empowerment, in which 63 professionals par­ticipate. The results show evidence of validity and reliability of the rubric in order to evalu­ ate the quality of socio-educational practices, and also to design and implement actions that focus on youth empowerment. It is noted for being a validated and useful instrument for making educational assessments related to youth empowerment, and for its usefulness in generating processes of reflection that become the basis for rethinking and improving peda­gogical practices.

This paper looks at the institutional origins of the Philosophy of Education in Spain through the study of Juan Zaragüeta, first Professor of this discipline in the thirties in the Spanish universities. Zaragüeta was trained in part at the Higher Institute of Philosophy at Louvain. He represented a link of continuity between the two worlds in which the institutionalization of pedagogy took place before and after the gap of the Spanish civil war. Nevertheless, the continuity was early truncated.The paper analyzes the presence of the courses of Philosophy of Education taught by Zaragüeta at the Section of Pedagogical Studies of the University of Madrid, and the conversion of their content into Fundamental Pedagogy.

The authors argue that the basis of this identification was the revival of Thomistic philosophy and synthetic view of knowledge promoted by Cardinal Mercier, that Zaragüeta experienced in Leuven and led him to characterize pedagogy as a social science.

Based on the philosophy of Kant, various attempts made in the 19th and early-20th centuries to constitute pedagogy as a scientific discipline are presented. Analysis is made of the educational function of the aesthetic experience according to Schiller, Herbart’s model, the return of Kant through Natorp’s regulatory pedagogy and, finally, the constitution of pedagogy as the science of the spirit.
