In cooperation with Freie Universität Berlin, IQB Berlin, University of Vienna, and University of Innsbruck, project KO-WADIS evaluates the scientific literacy of Bachelor and Master students in teacher education (biology, chemistry, and physics). At the Berlin universities, all students will be tested twice during the undergraduate studies (B.Sc.) as well as during the postgraduate studies (M.Ed.).
Sample size is 1.900 undergraduate and 900 postgraduate students. The main goal of the study is to observe and describe the growth and development of competencies in scientific reasoning and epistomological beliefs during the period of academic teacher education.
