Abstract [en]

In the swedish school system there are five grades: E, D, C, B and A. E, C and A all got explicit criteria for how to get his grades, however the two grades D and B don’t. They are a sort of middle grades with the criterion that the knowledge of the student for the most part fulfill the next grade. This means that a student who in some cases fulfill criteria for a C and in some cases fulfill criteria for an A gets a B. This might seem fair enough, but the problem is that teachers can’t agree on what for the most part means. Some teacher use a quantitative approach, eg. a student meet six out of ten criteria, and others use a qualitative approach, where some criteria are more important than others. This study explores this phenomena with interviews of five social science teachers and relates their answers to current research from inter alia the Swedish National Agency of Education. In this study the equivalence, the legal certanity and the equity of the middle grades is also discussed and compared with the other three grades. The results shows that different teachers use different approaches which are in line with the current research, and the conclusion of the middle grades equivalence, legal certanity and equity is that they are even less equivalent, secure and more inequity compared to the other grades.
