Data Package Description
Students at different universities in Germany were surveyed in 2016 about their study success in the study called "Studying successfully" (Erfolgreich Studieren, (Estud)). The study focusses on explanatory mechanisms of primary effects (social class achievement gaps in university grades) in higher education. The questionnaire comprises items on motivation, competency beliefs, social integration in the academic field, study habits and environmental conditions of students. Students from 18 universities in 11 federal states of Germany took part in the web survey. While the first wave focusses on a variety of different theoretical constructs for students with some study experience, the subsequent second wave is aimed at collecting those constructs for the first waves' first semester students. Additionally, some time variant items were administered to the entire population of the second wave.
Currently, the first wave of Estud is available as SUF.
