Abstract [sv]

This study is about the registration of study achievement (courses, credit points, degrees etc). It analyses the computer based student documentation systems for Swedish colleges and the statutory instruments (Swedish laws and ordinances) that governs these documentations. The National Agency for Higher Education is the central agency responsible for the official statistics about students’ achievements ( The practical responsibility for coordinating and collecting the data rests with the Statistics Sweden (, a government authority for official statistics. The study shows that the colleges (i.e. at the local level) record study grades (e.g. Fail, Pass or Pass with distinction) but this information is not collected by the Statistics Sweden (on the national level). Attention is also given to the use different types of measurements of study achievement in Swedish research. The study ends with a discussion about future research. One future task is to investigate new ways to use available statistics students’ achievements. A second task is to develop and use new types of measurements of study achievement. Finally, a third task is to increase the accessibility of the official statistics on students’ achievements.
