Call for papers closes soon: Special Issue "Large-scale Assessments in Education"

Under the heading „The National Educational Panel Study (NEPS) and Methodological Innovations in Longitudinal Large-Scale Assessments“ contributions are sought from a variety of disciplines that address methods of data collection and analysis in educational studies. The call for papers will close on November 30, 2021. Proposals for contributions can be submitted until then.

The special issue, edited by a team from LIfBi and the University of Bamberg, focuses on problem statements and innovative solutions for the analysis of psychological constructs in educational longitudinal studies such as NEPS. This includes in particular empirical applications of new methodological approaches, statistical simulations, or software reviews of methods in large-scale assessments of educational research. The contributions sought do not have to deal specifically with NEPS, but should be applicable to longitudinal studies in educational research and must be submitted by November 30, 2021. The special issue will also include selected NEPS conference papers.
