Abstract [en]

This article analyses the findings of a survey exploring Swedish leisure-time pedagogues' experiences of assessment in school and leisure-time centres. It aims to boost knowledge of how assessment, as a prominent example of changed education governance, is entering the work of leisure-time pedagogues and how it is perceived by them. It is concluded that leisure-time pedagogues often assess the development of children’s social competencies, activities in their centre and the leisure-time pedagogues’ own contributions. Possible explanations of why these assessments are mainly based on informal observations without any documentation are discussed, as are the leisure-time pedagogues' ambiguous attitudes to them.
