Abstract [en]

This study explored how scientifically based working methods were represented in upper-secondary school diploma projects and how these texts can be understood in relation to preparation for higher education. The empirical material was collected from three upper-secondary schools in Sweden. The data consisted of 54 upper-secondary school diploma projects with a pass grade. The theoretical framework drew on new literacy studies and on a design theoretical perspective. Initially, the diploma projects was examined on the basis of six science-specific criteria. Subsequently the projects were analysed to determine which representations of scientifically based working methods were made salient within the composition of the texts. The result showed that purpose formulations and questions, delimitations and source criticism and presentation of results with the support of different types of source texts were represented in the diploma projects. Scientific quality in the form of theoretical connection, theory and method knowledge and critical thinking was less prominent in upper-secondary school diploma projects.
