Abstract [en]

This study deals with special education assessment materials. The study's predominant purpose is to analyze these assessment materials. The study will also examine the special education teachers special perspective. One aim is to analyze the standard assessment materials in reading and writing that are commonly used by a number of special educators for pupils in grades 1-5 in some Swedish schools. The study is based on qualitative interview method. We interviewed ten special educators in five different municipalities. We have analyzed nine assessment materials as special educators use in special education. The findings show that six materials were summative assessment and three were formative assessment. Seven tests were criteria related and two tests were norm related. The overall results indicate that seven of the nine assessment materials had no proposals for action. All the interviewed special educators began their work with a student in a critical perspective. When they then recommend actions to the teachers they had both critical and compensatory perspective.
