The influence of Lgr11 in the teaching books, the teaching and the evaluation of Spanish as a foreign language (English)
Abstract [en]

The Swedish school, or more precisely, the school results of Swedish pupils, is a topic

widely discussed in media, the newspapers and among teachers and parents. Everyone

seems concerned about the knowledge requirements and there are many discussions

about how to change the negative spiral. With the change of national study plans from

the earlier Lpo94 to today´s Lgr11, many questions have arisen about how to plan and

evaluate teaching. Against this background, the aim of this essay is to verify what

influence the new national study plan has had on Spanish teaching, the study books in

Spanish and evaluation in upper secondary school in the communities of Skövde and

Mariestad. Our focus is delimited to the five competences of a language: listen, read,

write, speak and communicate.

In this essay we part from four hipotheses. In the first place, we believe that the

national study plans, Lpo94 and Lgr11, are very similar, but that there is a greater focus

on the competence of communication in Lgr11. In the second place, we believe that the

tests in the teacher´s guides are more or less adapted to the five competences depending

on if they were published before or after the change of national study plans. Our

hipothesis is that the newer tests are more adapted to the competences than the older

ones. In the third place, we believe that some teachers have adapted (more or less) to the

new system and that others have not. In the fourth place, our hipothesis is that those

teachers who have adapted to the new system, evaluate all the five competences, with

greater frequency and also make their own material to a greater extent than others.

The method used in this essay is a comparison between the national study plans and

the Spanish teacher´s guides. We have also made surveys among the teachers in the

communities of Mariestad and Skövde.

The results of our study show that there is a high similarity between the national study

plans, but that there is a greater focus on communication in Lgr11 when it comes to

knowledge requirements. The tests in the teacher´s guides differ a lot, and not many of

them have been republished since the system change. Interestingly, there is only one of

the teacher´s guides with tests that correspond to all five competences, and it is a book


before Lgr11. Furthermore, the teachers in our study respond differently on

how they believe that they have adapted to the new system. Half of them think that they


have made no changes at all, but the results show, surprisingly, that all the teachers

evaluate the five competences of a language and there is also a tendency to evaluate the

pupils more often than before. It seems like the new national study plan has had an

impact on all the teachers in our study.
