Point of Origin and Topic of Concern
- Implementation of web-based self-assessment tools at universities
- Tests and questionnaires about career-related interests, personality and/or abilities
- Feedback about the "suitability" of the students' personality and attitudes to the requirements of the course of studies
- Subject-specific (e.g. for teachers) and interdisciplinary self-assessment tools
The aim of the quasi experimental study with a pre-post comparison is to examine the effects which web-based self-assessment tools have on the cognitive, affective and motivational aspects of students' (who are in the final years of upper secondary school) choice of a course of studies.
Participants in the study: 529 students in advanced classes from 10 upper secondary schools in the German federal state of Schleswig-Holstein.
