Sammanfattning: Aim and research questions The purpose of this study is to investigate how teachers in physical education (PE) in grades 7-9 use ball games in education in relation to the curriculum. The study also aims to investigate teachers' description of how their assessment of students in connection with ball games relates to the knowledge requirements. Below we present our specific question formulation. In what way do PE teachers work with ball games in relation the curriculum for grades 7-9? How do PE teachers motivate the use of ball games in education connected to the curriculum? How do PE teachers describe their assessment of students’ ability in relation to ball games as content and the curriculums’ knowledge requirements? Method The data collection was done through semi-structured interviews. Six legitimate PE teachers in grades 7-9 were interviewed. All the interviewed teachers worked in different suburbs to Stockholm. The selection was made through a structured selection with the help of the Facebook groups “Idrottslärare” and “Sveriges idrottslärare” but also through snowball selection. The theories that have been helpful in understanding and interpreting the results are curriculum theory and frame factor theory. Results All interviewed teachers work with ball games as a tool to develop students’ complex movements and cooperative ability. A couple of teachers said that ball games can also be applied to parts of the curriculum such as health, sports injuries and more. The PE teachers motivate ball games as a method for developing student’s complex movements. Most of the teachers describe that it is difficult to know where the boundary between different grades when it comes to assessment and that it is also difficult to justify why the students has received a specific grade. Conclusion The study shows that the curriculum in PE for grades 7-9 is perceived as relatively interpretable on the transformation and realisation arena. This gives teachers choices when it comes to the choice of teaching content and implementation. Based on the curriculum theory it is possible to ascertain that all interviewed teachers interpret ball games in the curriculum and think that ball games are an important part of teaching. The reason why the PE teachers think that ball games are considered to have a place in PE may be because they are influenced by society and sports culture. Based on the pedagogical framework system, the teachers must have a great knowledge about how the assessment should be realized in reality and to avoid different interpretations of the grading steps, teachers work and discuss together to make the assessment fair.
