  1. 1. Assessing mathematical creativity : comparing national and teacher-made tests, explaining differences and examining impact

    Författare :Jesper Boesen; Johan Lithner; Torulf Palm; Gunnar Gjone; Umeå universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Mathematical reasoning; creative reasoning; moderate high stake; teacher made tests; imitative reasoning; assessment; impact; influence; effect; mathematical competence; national tests; MATHEMATICS; MATEMATIK; Mathematical reasoning;

    Sammanfattning : Students’ use of superficial reasoning seems to be a main reason for learning difficulties in mathematics. It is therefore important to investigate the reasons for this use and the components that may affect students’ mathematical reasoning development. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Dimensions of validity : studies of the Swedish national tests in mathematics

    Författare :Anna Lind Pantzare; Christina Wikström; Per-Erik Lyrén; Gordon Stobart; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; national tests; validity; interrater reliability; standard setting; linking; subscores; test development; didactics of educational measurement; beteendevetenskapliga mätningar;

    Sammanfattning : The main purpose for the Swedish national tests was from the beginning to provide exemplary assessments in a subject and support teachers when interpreting the syllabus. Today, their main purpose is to provide an important basis for teachers when grading their students. LÄS MER

  3. 3. High achiever! Always a high achiever? : A comparison of student achievements on mathematical tests with different aims and goals

    Författare :Elisabet Mellroth; Arne Engström; Jari Appelgren; Astrid Pettersson; Karlstads universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; achievement; alternative assessment; curriculum based assessment mathematical competency; mathematical kangaroo; mathematics tests; national tests; Matematik; Mathematics;

    Sammanfattning : This study explored changes in relative achievement over time. It also investigated differences in how two groups of students activate mathematical competencies. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Processbarhet på prov : Bedömning av muntlig språkfärdighet hos vuxna andraspråksinlärare

    Författare :Maria Eklund Heinonen; Ulla Börestam; Hanna Lehti-Eklund; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Swedish as a second language; processability theory; oral language testing; communicative language ability; morphological development; syntactical development; interaction; Scandinavian languages; Nordiska språk;

    Sammanfattning : This dissertation concerns oral language tests from a grammatical perspective. Tests today are usually assessed based on a communicative approach to language, so it is interesting to see how great a significance the level of grammatical development of test takers has for their communicative competence in general.

  5. 5. Mathematical Reasoning in Physics Tests : Requirements, Relations, Dependence

    Författare :Helena Johansson; Mats Andersson; Jesper Boesen; Kerstin Pettersson; Institutionen för matematiska vetenskaper Göteborgs universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Mathematical reasoning; imitative reasoning; creative mathematical reasoning; physics tests; physics tasks; upper secondary school; Mantel-Haenszel procedure;

    Sammanfattning : By analysing and expanding upon mathematical reasoning requirements in physics tests, this licentiate thesis aims to contribute to the research studying how students’ knowledge in mathematics influence their learning of physics. A sample of physics tests from the Swedish National Test Bank in Physics was used as data, together with information of upper secondary students’ scores and grades on the tests. LÄS MER
