Test and concept development to assess and promote financial literacy in young learners

Preparing students and young adults for life includes preparing them to handle money and financial resources responsibly. In addition to the adaptation and validation of an existing international testing instrument, the project aims at developing complex and competence-oriented examination materials as well as teaching concepts for young learners of vocational schools. Goal is the valid assessment of basic financial knowledge and, subsequently, the systematic promotion and assessment of the financial competence in students and young adults.
