The purpose of this article is to study the impact of the government reform to reduce the requirement for written assessments in primary school, grade six and whose aim, among other things, was to reduce teachers' administrative work. The study is based on interviews with primary school teachers. One of the theoretical starting points of the article is that teachers and schools interpret and implement reforms based on their local contexts and their own school practice, teachers "do" reforms (Ball, Maguire & Braun 2012). This is also confirmed in this study which, proves that several of the schools retained written assessments despite the reform, while others have taken them away.
In summary, we see that teachers do not believe that the administrative burden has decreased significantly as a result of the reform. Several instead emphasizes that the last ten years has meant an increase in administration. The revised rules are not the factor that most teachers highlight in the talk about what affects their work with administration. Functionality of digital tools, an established formative practice and assessment expectations from external operators, such as parents and local authorities, are rather underlined as factors that affect their work.
