  • Abstract

    As a follow-up project to the PIAAC 2012 study (Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies), the PIAAC-L project (PIAAC-Longitudinal) continues to follow the German PIAAC 2012 sample in a longitudinal direction with an expanded spectrum of questions. GESIS is conducting this project in cooperation with DIW Berlin (Socio-Economic Panel, SOEP) and the Leibniz Institute for Educational Trajectories (LIfBi), Bamberg (National Education Panel, NEPS). The project envisages three survey waves (in 2014, 2015, 2016) with different focal points. Detailed questionnaires (e.g., the SOEP core instruments as well as other questions on the personal background of the respondents) and instruments for measuring competencies (e.g., from PIAAC or NEPS) will be used. In the third wave of the survey, a shortened SOEP personal questionnaire will be used and supplemented by additional questions. Some of these questions - newly developed or modified from existing studies - are to be subjected to a cognitive (laboratory) pretest under methodological and questionnaire-related aspects, revised on the basis of the test results and - where possible - improved.
