Andersson, Per – European Journal of Education, 2021
Quality is a main issue when practices of validation are developed. In the Nordic countries, a model of quality assurance in validation has been introduced, to be applied in the development of validation practices. The model puts the individual at the centre and introduces eight factors for quality: information, preconditions, documentation,…

Engzell, Per – Sociological Methods & Research, 2021
In studies of educational achievement, students' self-reported number of books in the family home is a frequently used proxy for social, cultural, and economic background. Absent hard evidence about what this variable captures or how well, its use has been motivated by strong associations with student outcomes. I show that these associations rest…

Maryland Higher Education Commission, 2020
This report provides information on degree productivity for certain undergraduate student populations at Maryland's four-year public institutions. The data address trends from 2014 to 2018 using the measure Degrees per All (DpAll), which is a derivative of the measure degrees per 100 students. DpAll incorporates identifiable characteristics, such…

Nilsson, Per – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2020
This study introduces inferentialism and, particularly, the "Game of Giving and Asking for Reasons" (GoGAR), as a new theoretical perspective for investigating qualities of procedural and conceptual knowledge in mathematics. The study develops a framework in which procedural knowledge and conceptual knowledge are connected to limited and…

Nilsson, Per – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2020
This study examines informal hypothesis testing in the context of drawing inferences of underlying probability distributions. Through a small-scale teaching experiment of three lessons, the study explores how fifth-grade students distinguish a non-uniform probability distribution from uniform probability distributions in a data-rich learning…

Haugan, Jan Arvid; Frostad, Per; Mjaavatn, Per-Egil – Social Psychology of Education: An International Journal, 2021
The present longitudinal study was designed to scrutinize how adolescents perceive their life in upper secondary schools in general, and how central aspects of their perceived classroom climate predicted their coping beliefs and experience of school stress in particular. The participants were 1215 students in upper secondary schools (grades 2 and…

Urlaub, Per; Dessein, Eva – L2 Journal, 2022
This article argues that consumer-oriented machine translation software applications are disrupting foreign language education. In order to mitigate this impact, the article provides guidance on how to transform teachers' perceptions of online translators. This process is a critical precondition for the gradual and thoughtful implementation of…

Eckert, Andreas; Nilsson, Per – Digital Experiences in Mathematics Education, 2022
The purpose of this study is to further our understanding of orchestrating math-talk with digital technology. The technology used is common in Swedish mathematics classrooms and involves personal computers, a projector directed towards a whiteboard at the front of the class and software programs for facilitating communication and collective…

Engzell, Per – Sociology of Education, 2019
Why is it that children of immigrants often outdo their ethnic majority peers in educational aspirations yet struggle to keep pace with their achievements? This article advances the explanation that many immigrant communities, while positively selected on education, still have moderate absolute levels of schooling. Therefore, parents' education…

Nilsson, Per – Scandinavian Journal of Educational Research, 2019
The aim of this study is to investigate relationships between note-taking and the orchestrating of math-talk in whole-class teaching. A lesson on (average) velocity in a Swedish Grade 6 has been observed. Taking an inferentialist stance on human understanding, the study conceptualizes teaching and learning from the perspective of how students come…

Rosvall, Per-Åke – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2020
Sweden may be wealthy, but uneven distributions of resources still affect students' access to higher education and career choices. Some variation is linked to rural/urban divides, but myriads of other factors may also influence young people's options in transitions. Here I explore these issues, using data collected from interviews with study and…

Rosvall, Per-Åke – Education Inquiry, 2020
Mental health problems are increasingly common risk factors for chronic pain, while stressors in school are associated with persistent and recurrent pain among students, and negatively associated with educational achievements. Clearly, it is important to identify elements that influence frequencies or intensities of mental health problems. To…

Haavold, Per Øystein – Journal of Creative Behavior, 2020
In this exploratory study, I investigate the relationship between age, knowledge, and creativity in mathematics, by looking at to what extent does grade level, controlled for mathematical achievement, influence mathematical creativity and what characterizes the relationship between grade level, mathematical achievement and mathematical creativity.…
