27.08.2017 - In an interview with the newspaper Stuttgarter Nachrichten, Ulrich Trautwein criticizes that the state of Baden-Württemberg never really invested into quality assurance for its schools. Now it would take years to catch up.
09.08.2017 - Study: "Robin Hood Effects" on Motivation in Math - Students from families with little interest in math benefit more from a school intervention program that aims at increasing math motivation than do students whose parents regard math as important. The study by Dr. Isabelle Häfner and colleagues was recently published in the journal Developmental Psychology.
04.08.2017 - Congratulations! Mirjam Frey, née Wasner, successfully defended her dissertation titled "The importance of finger-based representations for numerical skills - Results of an intervention at the beginning of elementary school and differentiation of structural characteristics".
02.08.2017 - Prof. Dr. Ulrich Trautwein was appointed chairman of the four-member scientific advisory board by the Minister of Education Dr. Susanne Eisenmann.
