2006 (Swedish)Report (Other academic)
A new curriculum has been introduced for the Swedish driver education with the intention to (among others) include higher levels of skills and knowledge. The purpose of the present study was to describe and compare the old and the new curriculum for the Swedish driver education by using an instrument specific for this purpose. Bloom’s revised taxonomy and an integrated taxonomy were empirically tested and confirmed reliable and useable as instruments for describing the content in both the old and new curriculum. Three raters classified the objectives in the curriculum with the aid of the instruments and the results showed changes in the required knowledge and skills. One of the major changes was the decreasing demands of the cognitive skill remember and factual knowledge and the increased emphasis on the cognitive skill evaluate and on metacognitive knowledge in the theoretical objectives in the new curriculum. Further, the results showed that the emphasis on the psychomotor skill of mechanism has decreased in the practical objectives. The conclusion of this analysis is that the curriculum of the Swedish driver education has developed as intended. Though, in an education system it is important to have an agreement between goals of education and measurement. In future studies, it is therefore important to examine the alignment between objectives and measurement.
