Abstract [en]

The purpose of this paper is to try to understand which negative effects grading and judging in art class can have on the students. The emphasise lies on how the media specific parts of the subject is affected. The goal is to get knowledge how students experience getting judged and graded and how this affects them, hence understanding which factors affects them in a positive or negative way in this process. The literature study starts with a historical survey of the swedish grading system and the art subject in Swedish schools. It countinues to explain the current curriculum with an emphasise on art. In the last part of the literature study one can find prior research that has a connection to the survey in this paper. The empirical study that follows includes interviews with twelve ninth grade students and two art teachers. The results show, among other things, that the students have a fear of failing which is partly an effect of them being graded. Furthermore the results show some off the positive and negative effects that grading in art class has. One being that grades are a source of motivation and another that students tend to aim their work towards a grade and thus being limited in their creative choices. It also shows that although the student do not have a problem understanding the goals for exercises they have a harder time understanding on what grounds they are being graded, i.e. they have a hard time understanding the criterias in the curriculum.
