Study on the development of all-day schools - Dortmund project group

The research team of the "Study on the Development of All-day Schools - StEG" presents the report "All-day School 2012/2013". It is the result of a nationally representative online survey of 1,300 heads of schools with all-day programmes. You can download the entire report here (in German). 

Project description

The longitudinal study "StEG-P" focused on investigating the connection between the type and quality of design elements in the all-day school operation of primary schools and the individual effect on the pupils.

In order to gain an insight into the support effects of all-day schools on pupils' learning in primary school, the StEG-P study examined, among other things

  •     the type of all-day learning organisation
  •     the way pupils perceive the teaching of German and science,
  •     the design of the all-day forms of provision, and
  •     pupil participation in specific forms of provision in all-day schools (both in terms of the extent and breadth of participation).

StEG-P was designed to provide insights into the multi-criterial learning effects of all-day primary schools, which different settings offer as a whole, but also individual types of all-day provision. The main focus was on the phase of transition to secondary school: the longitudinal data collection took place between the middle of grade 3 and the end of grade 4.

Location & approach

The most convenient highway exits are on the B 1/A 40 (Dortmund-Barop) (closer to the North Campus) and on the A45 (Dortmund-Eichlinghofen). The university is signposted at both exits. In the local road network you will find signs to Campus Nord, where the Campus Treff is also located. From Emil-Figge-Strasse, entrance no. 18 and from Vogelspothsweg entrance no. 23 lead to parking spaces near the venue.

From Dortmund main station, take the S-Bahn "S1" in the direction of Solingen on track 7 to the stop "Dortmund-Universität" (price level A). The S-Bahn runs every 15 minutes during peak hours on weekdays and takes about 6 minutes. From Düsseldorf, the S-Bahn runs every 30 minutes. Directly at the S-Bahn station you will find the CDI building, which houses the Center for Research on Education and School Development.

One of the university's landmarks is the H-Bahn, which has two terminuses on the North Campus. One is located directly above the S-Bahn station and is easily accessible from it by elevators. The other is located in the center of Campus North at the bridge between the University Library and the Mensa, right next to the Audimax. The H-Bahn runs from here to the South Campus and the Eichlinghofen district.

Dortmund has an airport connected with some destinations in Central Europe. There are regular flights, for example, to Amsterdam, Berlin, Dresden, Katowice, Krakow, Leipzig-Halle, London, Munich, Nuremberg, Paris, Poznan, Stuttgart, Vienna and Zurich. For the approximately 20 kilometers from the Dortmund airport to the campus, you can take the bus to the main train station and from there the S-Bahn. Faster is usually the use of a cab. Far more international flight connections are offered by the Rhine-Ruhr Airport in Düsseldorf, about 60 kilometers away, which can be reached directly by S-Bahn from the university station.
