Abstract [en]

It is interesting to examine students´ self-assessment and reading for two reasons. One reason is to get an idea about how reliable students self-assessment is and another reason is that self-assessment in itself is an important skill needed as a part of the competence to learn as such.

 

During the period 1997- 1999 were 20,000 students in grade 3 and 15,000 students in grade 8 in Stockholm tested in reading. The students had to complete a reading test, but also complete a questionnaire in which, among other questions, students were asked to make a self-assessment of their reading skills. The younger students were also asked to make a self-assessment of their reading based on how they judged their ability to read subtitles on TV. The surveys included all students in grade 3 and 8 in Stockholm in these years. Participation in the survey was compulsory for all schools with students in these grades.

 

The paper will examine the correlation between results on the reading test and the students´ self-assessment of their reading skills. These correlations will be further analysed taking age, gender and other variables into consideration.
