Abstract [en]

Relating to norms in a criterion-referenced system of evaluation.

Since the 1990s, the Swedish system of evaluation is criterion-referenced. In this system, one of the main purposes of national tests is to promote equity in assessment. This article explores how teachers in the subject fields of English and Swedish in compulsory school (grades 6 and 9), understand the relationship between the act of grading and the national test results. We find that the teachers we have interviewed typically dismiss quantitative data and comparisons at aggregated levels and we argue that this dismissal has its root cause in an erroneous understanding of criterion-referenced assessment as completely independent of norms. A better, more nuanced understanding of the role of norms in criterion-referenced assessment would, we suggest, allow teachers to make better use of the potential of national tests in promoting equity.

Abstract [en]

The family has been a contested site throughout American history. More or less constantly perceived to be in crisis, in need of defending or in need of redefining, the family has been portrayed both, and often simultaneously, as the origin of the strength of the nation and the source of the threat to the survival of that same nation (see eg Christopher Lasch, Haven in a Heartless World). The family figures primarily as an ideal space, a blank canvas on which hopes and fears are projected.

In contemporary American discourse, these hopes and fears are increasingly entangled with or informed by reproductive technology. While abortion dominates political or public debates on gender issues in the US, there is no doubt that other forms of reproductive technology such as surrogacy, in vitro fertilization and sperm donation are increasingly becoming part of the gender debate, where women’s bodies are arenas for contesting the meaning of family, kinship in a wider sense, and the intersection between nature and technology. 

This paper explores the ways in which narratives of reproductive technologies are inflected by the categories of race, gender and sexuality and made to interplay with powerful narratives of family in two movies, the 1993 Made in America and the 2010 The Kids are all right. While reproductive technology is often discussed as disruptive to traditional discourses on family, I argue that although the movies encourage critical perspectives the narrative of family becomes the dominant one and that, in the end, not only familial, but also national cohesion and stability is re-affirmed.
