Qualities of contents and language in relation to the marks : A study of student texts from the national test in Swedish for grade 9 (Swedish)
The assessing of student texts is an ordinary and important task for teachers, and the purpose of this study is to investigate, analyze and discuss which aspects of writing that particularly have an effect on the assessment of the student texts. The aspects in focus are: contents, genre, text length, paragraphing, sentence structure and choice of words.
The data is drawn from six texts in the national test in Swedish for the 9th grade. Thetexts are analyzed quantitatively and qualitatively regarding contents as well as language.
The results show that the qualities of language influence the assessment more than the qualities of contents. Both word variation index and the number of long words increase in relation to raising marks. Uncommon words are also more frequent in texts which receive higher marks. In texts with high marks the sentence structure is more advanced which means that the texts are characterized by a frequent use of subordinate clauses and a stylistic use of sentence fragments.
