Call for Modules

for the National Educational Panel Study 2020

+++ First „Call for Modules“ successfully completed +++   (→ further information)

The National Educational Panel Study (NEPS) collects data on competence development and educational trajectories over the entire life course for more than ten years. For this purpose, the NEPS currently follows about 40,000 people from infants to adults throughout Germany every year. Based on a comprehensive theoretical framework (see Blossfeld & Roßbach 2019), the interdisciplinary NEPS network is putting together survey designs and programs for six starting cohorts (→

Starting with an open "Call for Modules" (CfM), the NEPS will now regularly open its survey program to external content. In NEPS-CfM 2020, proposals for question modules in all starting cohorts and for all target groups can be submitted for surveys starting in autumn 2021 (→ Study overview for the years 2021-2024). The modules can have a scope of up to 5 items. Suggestions for methodical questions are also possible and welcome.
