Exams based on Norway’s 2006 math curriculum were given every spring from 2009 to 2019, and the distribution of grades varied widely. Based on document analyses of the mathematics exams, we identify some traits of the exams’ form that may contribute to these variations in grades. The answer formats and weighting of the two parts of the exam seem to be factors that should be taken into account in an in-depth analysis of the exams.
