Economic competences in Austria

Project Details


For future educational policy considerations it is important to know which level of economic competence Austrians have achieved at the end of their secondary schooling. Despite the high topicality and relevance of the topic, there is no recent representative study of the economic competence of Austrian high school graduates in Austria.
The aim of the project is to examine the economic competence - focusing on economic knowledge - of young people at the end of the upper secondary level in Austria based on a large-scale empirical study. The results will allow to derive important implications for the further development and promotion of economic education in Austria.
