After a period of six years (2007-2013), the DFG Priority Programme “Competence Models for Assessing Individual Learning Outcomes and Evaluating Educational Processes” ended in autumn 2013. Professor Detlev Leuter, University of Duisburg-Essen and Professor Eckhard Klieme, German Institute for International Educational Research, Frankfurt initiated the DFG research Priority Programme (SPP) in autumn 2007. The aim was to facilitate networking and collaboration of experts from psychology, educational science, and subject didactics. In total, 30 interdisciplinary projects were launched, involving scientists from more than 30 German universities, the Max-Planck Institute for Human Development (MPIB), the German Institute for International Educational Research (DIPF), the Leibniz Institute for Science Education (IPN), the Institute for Educational Quality Improvement (IQB) and the Institute for School Quality in the States of Berlin and Brandenburg (ISQ).
