Pressures and positions of need during the Swedish third-grade National Test in Mathematics
2015 (English)In: Proceedings of the Ninth Congress of the European Society for Research in Mathematics Education / [ed] Konrad Krainer, Naďa Vondrová, Prague: Charles University , 2015, 1558-1563 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
This paper presents and discusses parts of a large-scale  ethnographical and longitudinal study that has followed the process of implementing the National Test in Mathematics for third graders (Ntm3) in Sweden during its first three years (2010, 2011, and 2012). Pupil talk from 2011 about pressure and what is at stake was used to construe three positions of need that might characterize pupils during the National Test in Mathematics in their third school year: the position of shame, the position of unfamiliarity, and the position of stress. How these might be handled in educational practices is discussed briefly.
