Development of an achievement test measuring student competencies in the fields of economics, labour, technics and vocational education

Ther BERLIN study evaluates the structural reform of Berlin's secondary school system. One goal of the study is to compare students' competencies in the domains of economics, labour, technics and vocational education before and after the reform. Since no achievement tests for these fields existed, a new test has been developed within the study to evaluate the students' knowledge at the end of lower secondary school.
