The purpose of this study is to illustrate how some teachers in multicultural school environments reflecton and experience the educational work with national tests in the third grade for students who do not have Swedish as their native language. The research questions I have chosen to work with are:
- How do teachers experience working with national tests in groups of students where there are children with Swedish as a second language?
- How do the teachers reflect on the students linguistic preconditions relating to the national tests in these groups of students?
- What strategies in their teaching on national tests do the teachers use when it comes to students with Swedish as a second language?
In this study I have chosen to use a qualitative interview method. Since the purpose of the study is to understand how teachers reflect on students with Swedish as a second language the obvious choice was to interview teachers who work in a multicultural school. In my thesis I have chosen to use sociocultural theory, Cummins four quadrant model and context for theoretical approach. In Swedish schools national tests are implemented annually in the third grade for the subjects Swedish, Swedish as a second language and mathematics. The different subjects in the national test are mandatory and the results are used as an assessment of the students’ knowledge. While national tests are supposed to be equal for all students in the elementary school the curriculum emphasizes that the teaching should be individualized according to each student’s needs and experience. The linguistic requirements differ for students with a different native language than Swedish. The teachers’ work with students who have Swedish as their second language may differ from each other.
