About Christina Kärrqvist

Research interests
My research interest lies in the field of Science Education. I have worked with lower-secondary students’ conceptions of content in physics, including electricity and optics, but this interest has also been extended to science and the very youngest children. In the last ten years I have led four national evaluations of Swedish schools in regard to the “general competences” of students. At present I am busy preparing TIMSS 2007
(Trends in Mathematics and Science Study), an international evaluation of science in 4th and 8th grade in Swedish schools.

Teaching interests
A main interest is to educate future teachers in the didactics of science.

Keywords
science education, subject-matter didactics, physics education, problem-solving, TIMSS
