Welcome to DaQS - the Database for Quality of School!
DaQS provides a service from and for quantitative empirical educational research, which was developed by the German Institute for International Educational Research (DIPF). Subject to this service, questionnaires and scales manuals from relevant studies are used to index and process instruments for the assessment of school and instructional quality. Differentiated insights can thus be gained into the documented study designs, and it is possible to compare the applied instruments and scales according to conventional parameters. The service is openly accessible and free of charge.
We offer four means of access:
- Simple search - offers initial quick access to the contents of the database.
- Advanced search - permits differentiated, targeted search queries.
- List of constructs and graphical presentation of the construct scheme construct scheme used by DaQS: invites you to run a construct-based search.
- The list of studies displays all the studies already indexed in DaQS at a glance.
