Kunskapskraven i praktiken : en studie av svensklärares uppfattningar om kunskapskraven i Lgy 11


  • Isabelle Karlsson

Summary, in English

The purpose of this study is to highlight upper secondary school teachers’ experiences of working with the national knowledge requirements in the Swedish subject. Teachers use national knowledge requirements as a tool both when they plan lessons and when they assess and grade students. The teachers’ experiences of the national knowledge requirements are compared to their opinions of the previous knowledge requirements that were used between 2000 and 2011. Also, the opinions that the teachers express are compared to how the national knowledge requirements were supposed to work.
This thesis is based on material from interviews with five upper secondary school teachers that have worked both during the previous grading system, Lpf 94, and the system that is in use today – Lgy 11. The results from the study show that teachers’ experiences of the national knowledge requirements varies greatly, which might also indicate that teachers interpret the knowledge requirements differently.
