Call for Modules 2022
for the National Educational Panel Study


For more than ten years, the National Educational Panel Study (NEPS) collects data on the development of competencies and educational trajectories over the entire life course (more details → The NEPS framework focuses on describing and explaining individual competence development and individual educational trajectories, their preconditions and consequences. For this purpose, the NEPS not only surveys subject-related (cognitive) competencies but also general skills and abilities as well as personality traits and other characteristics (→ Blossfeld & Roßbach 2019).

This thematically narrowed "Call for Modules" (CfM 2022) is intended to capture additional target dimensions of education or dimensions that have not yet been adequately considered in the NEPS (e.g., in the area of general skills and abilities or attitudes). The proposals for quality-tested questions/items are to be implemented in the so-called outcome CATI for the NEPS starting cohorts (SC) in the wide-meshed surveying (see also the current → Multicohort Sequence Design). The aim of the outcome CATI is to collect data for further research on long-term impacts and effects of education over the life course.

Proposals must not exceed a validated duration of up to two survey minutes in the telephone interview (per starting cohort) and include approximately 3 to 5 questions/items. For more information, please see the "Call for Modules".
