This report describes a comparative study of the change in grading system in the year of 1995 and the coming year of 2012. The objective is to analyze and compare the political debate from two Swedish parties, the Social democrats and the Moderates, from a number of the parties political periodicals. Futher the objective is to show, from the periodicals debate, what approach to knowledge the parties are presenting. The theoretical base of this study is rooted in the political background of grading system and in literature defining different theories about knowledge and approach to knowledge. The investigation is qualitative and the main research method is text analysis.
The conclusions is that the parties overall stood their ground and kept their opinions throughout the two debates and the change in grade systems. Although a small change has been detected in the way the Social democrats in the recent debate opened up for earlier evaluation of students. Futher on the parties approch to knowledge is a complex question and cannot be answered in just one word. And the conclusion of the parties approach to knowledge consists of many forms of reasoning and complexity.
