WiKom-SoWi: Modeling and measurement of scientific competency in social sciences

Project description

In this project we aim to model and operationalize scientific competency in social sciences, e.g. psychology, sociology and political science. We apply a longitudinal and cross-sectional design. Data about one thousand subjects in different qualification periods (undergraduate studies, graduate studies: master, graduate studies: doctorate) from different locations (Saarbruecken, Heidelberg, Mannheim) will be collected at several points in time.
