Development and research of technology-based methods for assessing learning outcomes and supporting learning processes

The research work at the TBA Centre is aimed, among other things, at improving and expanding measurement methods using digital technologies, the diagnostic use of process data from assessment and learning environments, the instructional use of learner data (learning analytics and feedback) and interfaces for information, teaching and learning systems. The research orientation is supported in particular by two research professorships: the Professorship for Educational and Psychological Assessment with a focus on technology-based applications anchored in the Centre for International Student Assessment (ZIB) in the Department of Teacher and Teaching Quality (LLiB) and the computer science Professorship for Educational Technologies and Learning Analytics established in the Information Centre for Education (IZB).
