Sammanfattning: The demands on Swedish schools concerning absence registration increased through the SwedishEducation Act from 2010. Nowadays children’s guardians need to be informed about their child’sschool absence the same day it happens. Many Swedish schools were changing to digitalattendance registration systems at roughly the same time as this demand came. Up until now littleresearch in this field has been conducted even though they are used daily at a large number ofschools in Sweden. The aim of this thesis is to investigate how digital attendance registration canbe understood within a school practise if you choose to see digital attendance registration as aninfrastructure. This is done through an online survey aimed at teachers in grades 0-9 in Sweden.The online survey is performed in seven different Facebook-groups for teachers. The selection ofparticipants is a so-called ”convenience sampling”, the teachers who have time and opportunityanswer the survey. The survey is posted online for 19 days before it’s closed down. During thattime 151 answers were submitted. Except for showing that teachers are very positive to thedigital attendance registration systems the answers show us that it is relevant to see digitalattendance registration systems as an infrastructure. The teachers’ statements are analysed withthe help of Star & Ruhleder’s dimensions of infrastructures and one can see that these are easilyapplicable to the answers. The teachers in the survey mention many different elements that aretypical of an infratructure, even if they themselves are not talking in terms of infrastructures. Theresult shows that if you understand the act of filling in absent students as part of an infrastructureyou also see how the attendance registration system is connected to other tools and practises.
