I am my own teacher : An experimental study of independent text revision by pupils ingrade 6 (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of the study was to investigate how an independent revision of a self- produced

text for the national examinations in Swedish for grade 6 changes its quality. An

additional aim was to study whether this change in quality led to a change in the grade

awarded to the text. In this study the pupils were viewed as independent individuals with

an ability to think and act on their own, and therefore a cognitive perspective was applied

to the result. The study used the texts produced by the pupils during the national

examination, and the accompanying grading matrix was used as a yardstick. After the

pupils had revised their text, it was graded again and this was compared with the previous

grade to manifest the change. When the grading had been done, the texts were divided

into one of three categories: improved, deteriorated, or unchanged quality, which enabled

a quantification of the results of the study. This shows a general improvement in text

quality after the revision. Of the 36 participants in the study, 28 improved the quality of

their texts, and 6 of these were judged to have earned higher grades. Only one text was

deemed to have declined in quality and earned a lower grade. It is relevant for teachers in

today’s school to know that a revision should not just be viewed as a final correction but

as part of the entire writing process. The study also shows that pupils who revise a text

on their own improve its quality. In some cases it may be appropriate for a teacher to give

a response in order to allow pupils a better chance to improve the quality of their texts.
