Assessment of laboratory work in upper secondary school physics (English)
Abstract [en]

In the current situation there is not much written about assessment of laboratory work, and the majority of the working physics teachers are retiring and there are only a few newly qualified physics teachers. The purpose of this thesis is to examine how physics teachers assess laboratory work within upper secondary schools, with Gy2011 in mind. The new grade system, Gy2011, has a larger focus on the laboratory work then the earlier system Lpf 94. Skolverket has in their man-ual with examples of assessment two different sorts of laboratory experiments. The first assess-ment is regarding the planning of a laboratory work and the other about how able the pupil exe-cutes laboratory work. Both kinds of laboratory work have suggestions regarding reports and scoring matrixes. Teachers from three different schools in the southern parts of Sweden, have among other things, been interviewed concerning their opinion regarding assessment of laborato-ry work. The results show similarities between the schools but also differences. The assessment of the laboratory work differs between the schools and also within the schools.
