[What does the primary school student know about the map?] and was published in 1971 in the report series: Rapporter från Pedagogiska institutionen i Göteborg [Reports from the Department of Education in Gothenburg]. As a part of the doctoral studies Pontus Hennerdal conducted at Stockholm University, he recreated parts of the test Peterson used in her study.
