Abstract [en]

The purpose of this essay has been to investigate if the national test results, in the subject of Swedish B at upper secondary school, are affecting a student’s final grade in varied degree among different teachers. The purpose has also been to investigate if the assessment of these tests is equivalent among different teachers. This particular investigation showed that there are big differences between how teachers grade, in relation to achieved results on the national test. According to the Swedish National Agency for Education, the teacher should take all performance information available into consideration for each particular student. This means that the result of a national test is only part of the teacher’s collected assessment in relation to the goals. Yet, it seems as if many teachers use the national test result as an important, and sometimes even as the only basis, when they determine a student's final grade. The investigation is also indicating that the national tests are assessed differently by different teachers. What teacher the student have, can therefore be crucial for what final grade a student will receive in relation to his or hers test result. Since it is of great importance that the assessment of the national test is fair and consistent and that the result of the assessment will be the same no matter who carries it out, the result shows that it is open to question if the national test can be considered to contribute to comparability and fairness of grades.
