LSA004: Validierung und Weiterentwicklung individualprognostischer Ansätze zur Erfassung der dynamischen Problemlösekompetenz

Complex Problem Solving will be a part of the International Large-Scale-Assessment (LSA) PISA 2012 ("Programme for International Student Assessment") in form of the MicroDYN and MicroFIN test systems. Both test systems are theoretically based on Dorners concept of operative intelligence and have proven their utility to measure differential facets of dynamic problem solving competence in empirical studies and LSA.

There are multiple aspects that will be looked at accompanying the implementation of MicroDYN and MicroFIN in PISA 2012.

  1. The variance of the measuring model will be inspected in cooperation with the University of Szeged, Hungary. Therefore, two large samples of 14 to 16 year-old students (one from Germany one from Hungary) will be analyzed regarding the invariance of the measuring model in national and international samples.
  2. Another aim is to develop the MicroDYN and MicroFIN systems further withing the scope of additional measurable facets of Complex Problem Solving. Also, new and adequate indicators for the existing measurable facets of MicroFIN should be generated.
  3. The validation of the enhanced versions of MicroDYN and MicroFIN will be conducted with the help of a representative sample of students.
  4. It is planned to develop special MicroDYN items which can be used to measure the achievement of educational standards within the competence of knowledge acquisition in natural science through appropriate semantic embedment of the items.
