In 2019, members of the DDP project met twice to discuss their first results and to agree on the next steps. The first meeting took place at DIPF | Leibniz Institute for Research and Information in Education in Frankfurt am Main and the second at the IQB | Institute for Educational Quality Improvement in Berlin.
Both meetings were structured according to the same pattern. In addition to an introductory and a concluding part, each meeting comprised two very central discussion points: The basic concept of Science Europe and a DDP example for cross-sectional data.
The goal of the two meetings was to expand the common understanding of the design of domain data protocols. Within this framework, the structure, content, and level of detail of the DDPs to be developed were discussed. In doing so, it was possible to identify elements of most relevant data types for empirical educational research as well as important discussion points for the further process.
