In my research I am interested in identifying and describing the process that now takes place, around evaluations, follow ups and assessment in educational practice in Sweden from a teacher´s perspective. Article 28 of the UN Convention of the Rights of the Child, specifies that, each and every child is entitled to education. In Sweden, each school can decide on how, when, and by whom, the pupil will get tutored in a subject. However, every pupil is expected and entitled to reach, at the very minimum, the level of knowledge stipulated in the goals to attain in grade 5 and grade 9, in the national curriculum. Despite this several reports have highlighted the alarming situation of neglect of the follow-up of the pupils’ knowledge development as well as the school´s neglect of Technology education. This raises many questions about underlying factors. This paper provides a description of the process of assessment in Technology education with the focus on teachers’ views on the possibilities for follow-up, and assessment.
