An "Appropriate" Test Taker: The Everyday Classroom during the National Testing Period in School Year Three in Sweden
Silfver, Eva; Sjöberg, Gunnar; Bagger, Anette
Ethnography and Education, v11 n3 p237-252 2016
This article draws on data from a bigger project where we explore what is taking place in the daily life of classrooms during the national testing period in mathematics for 9-10-year-old children in Sweden. Data were produced by observations, video-recordings and interviews with children. The article shows on a micro level how assessment trends, on a macro level, affect children. It further focuses how children through different repertoires of time position themselves as "appropriate" test takers.
