This Comic Will Forever Change the Way You Look at Privilege This Comic Will Forever Change the Way You Look at Privilege Toby Morris describes himself as “an Auckland-based illustrator, art director, comic artist and recently the author of Don't Puke On Your Dad: A Year in the Life of a New Father.” His recent comic, The Pencilsword's “On a Plate” illustrates the concept of privilege, and delivers the truth with a punchline that literally hits you in the gut. He places two individuals side by side, showing how financial security and benefits, or the lack of it, affects them even if they come from households that love and support them, leading to two completely different outcomes.

This comic first appeared here, and is the property of Toby Morris and The Wireless. (H/T: The Wireless)

Nationella prov för samhällsorienterande ämnen, årskurs 6 och 9 Bakgrund och konstruktionsarbetet Att konstruera prov Viktiga begrepp när man ska konstruera bra nationella ämnesprov, och prov överhuvudtaget, är validitet och reliabilitet. Lite förenklat kan man säga att validiteten handlar om att mäta det man avser att mäta. Reliabiliteten handlar om att reducera slumpens inverkan på provresultatet, att proven blir rättvisa helt enkelt.
