Study Plan Statistics

Data-based monitoring of study progress

The University of Bremen’s system of data-based monitoring provides an overview of central milestones in the study progress of new students, including study progress and early withdrawal, examination results as well as the acquisition of credit points. The monitoring has been developed in order to identify appropriate action and need for intervention on the part of study programs. The monitoring entails that the students’ and examination data are processed and evaluated by means of longitudinal analysis.

The monitoring takes place once every semester and is passed on to the Faculties via the study deans. In addition to the survey results, it provides a further empirical basis for the implementation of the Faculties’ quality loops. The Center for Teacher Training receives the evaluation results for the purpose of quality assurance and quality management in the area of teacher education.
