Modellprövning: Empirisk prövning av teoretiska modeller för beskrivning av kursplan för förarutbildning
2006 (Swedish)Report (Other academic)
A new curriculum has been introduced for the Swedish driver education. It is important to evaluate the effects of the change and one part of that evaluation is to compare the old curriculum with the new curriculum. To carry through such a comparison in a relevant and reliably manner some kind of model is required. In a literature review (Stenlund, 2006), two models were suggested as suitable for the comparison. One model, Bloom’s revised taxonomy (2001), was suggested for description of the theoretical objectives and one model, an integrated model (a fusion of Simpson’s psychomotor taxonomy (1966) and the dimension of knowledge from Bloom’s revised taxonomy) was suggested for description of the practical objectives.
The purpose for the present study was to test these two theoretical models empirically to find out if they are reliable and useable as tools to describe the content in the old and the new curriculum. This was done in two steps. In the first step an inter-rater reliability study was conducted. The second step was a consensus discussion for the purpose to further clear the models descriptions and to bring about a consistent classification of all objectives. The results from the inter-rater reliability study showed a moderate or god reliability for both models. Further, the results from consensus discussion showed that all objectives could be classified in the models and that an agreement could be obtained regarding the definitions of the various aspects in the models. The models also provide a clear and varying picture of the content in the old and the new curriculum. The conclusion of the empirical tests is that both models are suitable to describe the content in the curriculum for the Swedish driver education.
