Likvärdiga betyg i matematik: Utvärdering av mätmetod

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att undersöka om en matematisk diagnos kan användas för att bedöma hur likvärdigt betyg sätts. Studien visar att diagnosen indikerar skillnader i likvärdighet som ligger i linje med tidigare forskning. En mer detaljerad undersökning där diagnosen jämförs med nationella prov skulle ge ett säkrare svar angående diagnosens tillförlitlighet.

Diagnosens förmåga att förutsäga elevernas betyg i första matematikkursen i gymnasiet var god. Sambandet mellan diagnos och gymnasiebetyg var starkare än sambandet mellan diagnos och grundskolebetyg. Detta kan ha flera orsaker: (i) gymnasielärarna som konstruerat diagnosen har endast tagit med uppgifter som sammanfaller med första gymnasiekursen, (ii) grundskolor sätter betyg på olika grunder, (iii) elevernas matematikkunskaper förändras över sommarlovet.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of the study was to evaluate how well a matematical test can measure the equity of grades between schools. This study indicates that the test shows differences in equity that also has been seen in earlier research. A more detailed investigation, where the local test compared with the national tests, would be appropriate to better decide the reliability of method.

The mathematical test has also shown potential to give a good indication about the pupils further progress in upper secondary school. The grades from the previos school is less accurate which can depend on: (i) the teachers, that have constructed the test, have only included excercises that are of use for the first course in mathematics in upper secondary school, (ii) the grades are not reflecting knowledge, (iii) the knowledge changes over the summer vacation.
