Abstract [en]

Grades is a way to estimate how well a student has understood a subject.

But what influences these grades? Is it only the students motivation and

determination to study? His talent? Or does the examiner have a big

influence on the grade? We have evaluated this last question by using

statistical modelling, multiple linear regression and ordered probit

regression. Our findings shows that the grade a student received on the

exam is correlated with the examiner. However we did not see a systematic

difference of an examiner’s performance over a period of time for a given

course. For the reader that is unfamiliar with statistical modelling, a brief

introduction to this field is provided.
