Jag nöjer mig med godkänt: En studie om elevers mål mot betyget A eller E

Abstract [sv]

Studien grundar sig i att undersöka varför vissa elever ”nöjer sig med godkänt”. Varför väljer vissa elever att sträva mot betyget E och andra mot A i samband med teoretiska prov? Fyra elever på ett yrkesförberedande gymnasieprogram har intervjuats i denna kvalitativa studie för att förstå vilka motivationsaspekter som kan påverka elever i sina studier. Resultatet visar bland annat att elever värderar betyg olika, någon elev tvivlar på sin förmåga att kunna prestera ett A, samt att eleverna påverkas av sina klasskamraters studiemotivation. I diskussionen påpekas värdet av feedback och att eleverna hellre bör berömmas för sina prestationer än för sina personliga egenskaper.

Abstract [en]

This study is based on examining why some students “settle for E”. Why do some students choose to strive for the grade E and others for A in the context of theoretical exams? Four students at a vocational upper secondary school program have been interviewed in this qualitative study to understand which motivational aspects that can influence students in their studies. The results show that students value the ratings differently, one student has doubts about the ability to perform an A, and students are influenced by their classmates’ motivation to study. The discussion pointed out the value of feedback and that students rather should be encouraged for their efforts rather than for their personal characteristics.
