Over time international large-scale assessments have grown in terms of number of studies, cycles, and participating countries, many of which are a heterogeneous mix of economies, languages, cultures, and geography.

Erikson, Josefina – Scandinavian Journal of Educational Research, 2017

Wermke, Wieland; Forsberg, Eva – Scandinavian Journal of Educational Research, 2017
This article discusses teacher autonomy in the case of the Swedish teaching profession since the 1980s. It is argued that deregulation, decentralization, and marketization reforms of the 1990s have indeed increased teacher autonomy, but in some respects also led to a increase of complexity in the Swedish school system. In order to handle this…

Wahlström, Ninni – Scandinavian Journal of Educational Research, 2016
In this article, I explore the question of how a cosmopolitan perspective on education could be understood from curriculum-based activities in classrooms.
