    Abstract

    Aim:

    The purpose of this study is to examine teachers’ and students’ views of why students do not pass the course idrott och hälsa A and in what way the teachers actions are equivalent the problems that students experience. Our research questions are: What is, according to teachers and students, the basis for assessment and grading in the course idrott och hälsa A? Which are, according to teachers and students, the reasons to why students do not pass the course idrott och hälsa A? Which actions are teachers taking to help students that receive the grade Icke Godkänt in idrott och hälsa A? In which way do teachers’ actions agree to the students’ views on the reasons causing the grade Icke Godkänt in idrott och hälsa A?

    Method:

    This study is a qualitative study, which has been carried out through semi-structured interviews at three upper secondary schools in Sweden. The schools were placed in north, inner city and south part of Stockholm. The study contains interviews of three teachers and seven students. The criteria for participation was that the students should have finished the idrott och hälsa A course and been having the teacher being interviewed as their Physical Education teacher during that course.

    Results:

    The results indicated that teachers and students views to some extent differ regarding what the grade is based on. For example students experience that the grade, to a large extent, is based on student attendance while the teachers state that the only aspect that plays a part in grading the students are the course objectives and the grading criteria’s. The teachers work with communication through grading calls and dialogs to make the goals of the course and the grading criteria’s clear to the students. The teachers mean that attendance plays an important part in the students’ possibilities to reach the goals of the course. Regarding the causes of why students fail the study has shown that the teachers and students agree. The main causes are non-attendance, previous negative experiences and the level of fun in the subject. The teachers’ actions correspond with these causes through having students work in smaller groups, communication and an open ending to the course.

    Conclusion:

    The conclusion of this study is that teachers and students, to a large extent, have the same vision of the causes, but the action differs between teachers, which shows that the schools does not work with any general actions. Moreover, the subject’s elaborative nature demands a high level of attendance compared to other subjects. Teachers who work with the components comprehensibility, manageability and meaningfulness have opportunities to make their students pass the course and show Physical Education as a subject of knowledge.
