Abstract [en]

Abstract: The results of the improvement in Math between school year 3-4, 5-6-7 and 8-9 in the Swedish school system is analysed using the effect-size estimator. The result shows that the yearly improvement decreases in particular when the pupils reach school year 7-9. The estimate is based on the Swedish version of the international kangaroo competition. A few points on reliability are discussed. The validity of using this particular data is also discussed.
