International evaluation of didactics

Swedish, mathematics and natural science

Within the Swedish Research Council an overall framework for the evaluation of research support was adopted by the Committee for Educational Science (CES) in February 2005.

As areas to be evaluated in 2005, the CES chose didactics in Swedish, mathematics and natural science. In April 2005, a panel of three experts was appointed by the Secretary General, Educational Science, and the result of their work is presented in this book.

The goal of the evaluation should be to shed light on the quality of the research performed and its significance for the scientific field concerned, in a national and an international perspective and in relation to the funding awarded by the CES.
