Abstract [en]

Adaptive comparative judgment (ACJ) has proven to be a valid, reliable, and feasible method for assessing student performance in open-ended design scenarios. In addition to the use of ACJ for purely assessment and evaluation, research has demonstrated an opportunity to identify the design values of judges involved with the ACJ process and feed that into classroom practice and possible curriculum design. The potential for ACJ, as a tool for understanding cultural design values, and potentially facilitating international collaboration, is intriguing. Therefore, this study established three panels of judges from USA, UK and Sweden, with the purpose of unpacking teachers’ assessment practices. These three panels assessed a body of 760 American student works, in technology/ engineering education, using the ACJ method. The similarities, differences, and quantitative and qualitative data findings from these assessment results were analyzed, revealing distinct design values, preferences, and differences for each group of judges from the different locations. This paper will show possible use of ACJ on larger scale to find out and explicate criteria for success in open-ended design tasks to inform formative assessment practices. The paper will tie literature together and provide an overview of possible use of ACJ to inform future work within the field of assessment.

Abstract [en]

Technology is a compulsory subject for all school years in Sweden. The curriculum states that teaching should contribute to the students' understanding of technological development (LGr11, syllabus in technology). Interdisciplinary teaching is encouraged in the curriculum, however, the relationship between subject-matter in technology and history is not well documented. It this study, five primary school teachers’ experiences and attitudes of interdisciplinary teaching are investigated through open-ended interviews. A thematic analysis of the data identified three preliminary themes. The first theme confirms that interdisciplinary teaching occurs. The teachers say that through interdisciplinary teaching, they build meaningfulness and coherence for students. In the second theme, teaching on technological development often emerges as spontaneous and unplanned. Here, teachers became aware in the interview that their teaching may also be described as technological. The third theme suggested that teachers used artefacts as an entrance to the past, for student’s immersion and understanding. The interdisciplinary teaching between technology and history is largely unexplored, especially for the younger ages. Through identifying that in teaching practice technology is integrated with history, although not always planned or consciously, the technology subject can gain more awareness and a stronger position in the curriculum and wider contexts.

Abstract [sv]

I den svenska skoldebatten är frågan om forskningsförankring högaktuell och det hänvisas flitigt till olika texter och artiklar. Några texter och forskare hänvisas det till oftare än andra- texter som banat väg och gjort bestående avtryck som stått sig över tid. Den här boken innehåller ett urval av dessa nyckeltexter som inte tidigare funnits tillgängliga i svensk översättning. Författarna är några av världens ledande skolforskare, till exempel Dylan Wiliam, John Hattie, Helen Timperley och Michael Fullan. Urvalet har gjorts av tre tongivande svenska skolutvecklare, samt i några fall i samråd med skolforskarna själva. Resultatet är en resa inom skolforskning i både ett historiskt och samtida perspektiv. Under övergripande rubriker som psykologi, lärande och undervisning samt reformer och utveckling får vi ta del av banbrytande texter inom respektive område. Det är omtumlande, förvånande och utmanande på samma gång. Framför allt bringar texterna i påståenden som mer eller mindre tas för givna inom skolforskning. Hur vet vi det, vem sa egentligen vad och när?

Abstract [en]

Since first conceived, the concept of pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) hasattracted much attention. Despite being lauded by educationalists as the unique knowledgebase of teachers, research on the concept over the past 30 years has yet to result in a universallyaccepted definition being presented. Much of the contentions surrounding the lack ofan agreed upon conception appear to have stemmed from difficulties in understanding therelationship between PCK, other areas of teacher knowledge, teacher beliefs, and enactedpractice. This paper considers the application of PCK frameworks to design and technology(D&T) education, through an analysis of the nature of the discipline from an ontologicaland epistemological perspective and contemporary perspectives on the construct of PCK.It is theorised that the volition afforded to teachers in D&T through weakly framed subjectboundaries negates the effective application of PCK frameworks, as teachers’ beliefs have agreater impact on enacted practices. In an attempt to better understanding enacted practicein D&T education, the paper proposes a methodological framework centred on the interactionsbetween teachers’ beliefs and knowledge in the discipline, through synthesising theconcept of amplifiers and filters of practice with the nature of D&T education. The proposedframework outlines the need to recognise individual teachers’ conception of capabilityas a critical influence on enacted practice.

Abstract [en]

This article examines content validity in teacher made tests in elementary technology education—an interdisciplinary subject mandatory for all pupils in compulsory school in Sweden. The context of teacher-based assessments relies heavily on trust for teachers to cope with demands. Even though the system is challenged and preconditions for teachers’ assessment practices are not always adequate to support instruction, much is unknown about teachers’ assessment practices. In this explorative study, 30 teacher-designed tests in technology education from 12 elementary schools were scrutinized in regards to content validity and the types of questions used to assess student knowledge supporting technological literacy. The results present the content validity of these tests in its current form, which may call into question the validity in terms of content and ability. Furthermore, the tests indicate how the technology school subject continues to struggle with shifting epistemologies and technologies far removed from pupils’ everyday lives, which seem to contradict the aims and purpose of the subject.

Abstract [en]

This thesis focuses on teachers’ assessment practices in primary and lower secondary schools for technology education (Sv. Teknik). It is grounded in my prior experience as a teacher but also addresses the national and international research fields of technology education and assessment.

The thesis is based on four papers covering different aspects of teachers’ assessment practices in technology. Its aim is to contribute to knowledge regarding how teachers use assessments in primary and lower secondary school. The thesis explores: teachers’ formal documenting practices; primary teachers’ minute-by-minute classroom assessment; teachers’ views on assessment and finally teachers’ statements and motives relating to criteria for success while assessing students’ e-portfolios.

The choice of methods varies, depending on the focus of each sub-study, including quantitative data, collected from official governmental databases, software-generated statistical data and questionnaires as well as qualitative methods such as observations and interviews.

Formal documents proved to be unsupportive for teachers’ assessment practices. Lack of instruction and deficiencies in design templates made these documents practically useless. The classroom study shows that the studied teachers have great ambitions for their pupils to succeed but lack collegial support concerning their assessment practices. Findings also show that teachers who are specifically trained in technology show higher self-efficacy regarding their assessment practices. Based on the results from the teachers' assessments of e-portfolios, it is concluded that there is consensus among the teachers to focus on the whole rather than on particular details in student’s work. The overall results strengthen the importance of designing activities and that students should be taught and not left to unreflective doing in technology.

Teachers’ assessment practices are complex. This thesis shows that teachers work with assessment in different ways. It is also shown that the educational environment is not supportive enough. Assessment is a necessity in the endeavour of bridging teaching and learning in technology, thus affordance for teachers’ assessment practices must be increased.
