The debates on the production and dissemination of the knowledge in Special Education, produced essentially in the Graduate Programe in Education, Special Education and Psychology in Brazil, are increasing and, in general way, make possible the identification of trends and gaps. Considering this, the doctor dissertations and master thesis produced in the Program of Post-Graduation in Special Education of the Federal University of São Carlos (PPGEEs/UFSCar) had been analyzed in this study, with the objective of identifying the methodological delineations, the techniques and the instruments of collection, the forms of analysis and the more frequent mensuration resources and to verify the relation that these components of the students production establish with the objectives. The dissertations defended in the PPGEEs/UFSCar after the defense of the first doctorate thesis, in August of 2000, up to 2004, had been selected by means of proportional stratified sampling and all the thesis produced in this period. For the collection of data, initially, it was realized a reading of the selected dissertations and thesis, following a protocol elaborated to make it easier and standardize the collection of data. In the sequence, the dissertations and thesis had been grouped according to the academic level and the categories (target population, subject, objective, delineation, technique and instrument of collection, form of analysis and mensuration resource). After, it had been verified the possible relations among the information collected by means of the comparisons: objectives and subject versus methodological procedures (delineations, techniques/instruments, forms of analysis and mensuration resources); research lines, year of defense and scholarship versus objectives, subjects and methodological procedures, by the joint analysis of the categories. The results had revealed that the analyzed students production of the PPGEEs/UFSCar focused the mental deficiency in the taget population; the teaching-learning as subject; the description, the experiment and the almost-experiment as delineations; the interview, the observation and the test in the collection of data; the form of quantitative analysis concomitant to qualitative or only the quantification; and, amongst the dissertations and thesis with some quantification procedure, the tools of the descriptive statistics. Differences are observed when the methodological procedures are compared with the academic level, objective, subject and research line. It is distinguishing the importance of the student staff of the PPGEEs/UFSCar pledging in the selection of the methodological procedures tied with the initial definition of the problems, objectives and hypotheses of the researchs.
