Abstract [en]

This paper, called Pupils' practice of source criticism on the Internet, is investigating pupils’ use of source criticism. The main research question was: how much knowledge pupils from an upper secondary class have about the use of source criticism, regarding examining data from the Internet intended for assignments. Furthermore, developing a suitable method to investigate this was included. The main research question led to further sub questions that aimed to answer to what extent pupils consider source critique criteria as sender, aim, up-to-dateness, credibility and dependence.

The study has been conducted by using mixed methods, both qualitative and quantitative methods. The qualitative research consisted of analysing the Internet sources pupils had stated they used in their assignments. The paper’s theoretic starting points, regarding source critique criteria, lay ground for the analysis model applied. The quantitative method was conducted through the help of questionnaires amongst pupils, which gave insight to how pupils think about the choice of Internet sources they intended to use in their assignments.

The conclusion is that pupils have knowledge about source criticism to a certain extent, as some source critique criteria get large attention and other important criteria is not enough considered. The method for investigating this has worked well, but since this is a first attempt there are room for some modifications.
