"tidiness in written work"
Explanation:
This is not an independent subject, but was applied generally to all subjects.

It still turns up on older references and school reports, e.g. at the bottom of page 3 in this reference, where the old grade scale is used.

http://www.dialektika.dk/docs/cv.pdf

(UG+, 'ualmindelig godt' is still used proverbially for something done really well.)

The grade for tidiness was abolished, probably when the grade scale was replaced by '13-skalaen", which is in turn being phased out and replaced by a 7-point scale.

Or perhaps 'presentation of written work', which is used nowadays for formatting, margins etc.

In the 50s and 60s and earlier, 'orden med skriftlige arbejder' meant legible handwriting, clear drawings if used, logical order of paragraphs and generally neat setup.

And the points the teachers gave or witheld for tidiness made a real difference to the general average mark!

My husband remembers this from school - and it included correct spelling! It was a constant battle for him, because he is in fact left handed, but was forced to write with is right hand. I still say sometimes that you have to be in love with him to read his writing!

It was an unpopular grade and regarded by some pupils as very unfair.
