Abstract

Swedish preschool teachers are obliged to work with systematic documentation and assessment of children’s changing knowledge. The aim of this study is to contribute to research on assessment in preschool, by highlighting multiple voices portrayed in a transformative documentation practice, built on systematic work of pedagogical documentation.

Pedagogical documentation refers to two related areas: 1) the process, and 2) content in the process (Dahlberg et al, 2006). Pedagogical documentation is primarily about trying to understand what is going on in pedagogical work, to understand what a child knows and learns, without predetermined expectations (Dahlberg et al, 2006).

Bakhtin’s concept of polyphony is used as a conceptual framework.

The methodology is qualitative text analysis. Preschool teachers’ voices are analyzed in relation to the concept of transformative assessment (Vallberg Roth, 2014), as well as the Bahktinian concepts of dialogicity, the authoritarian word, and unconditional connections.

Informed consent was obtained from all the participants in this study: teachers and parents of the children at the preschool.

The results show a complexity of simultaneously existing polyphonic voices, where the teachers are negotiating their efforts to engage dialogically, in order to connect with the children, and the demands of authoritative voices related to assessment.

By highlighting the complexities and tensions involved in systematic quality work, this research has implications for the development of teacher’s assessment and evaluation practices
