Center for Evaluation and Methods

The Center for Evaluation and Methods (ZEM) at the University of Bonn (Germany) is directed by Prof. Dr. André Beauducel (head of Psychological Methods, Assessment, and Evaluation; Department of Psychology, Faculty of Arts) and was founded by Prof. Georg Rudinger in 1999.

Our key research areas are evaluation as well as media, social and market research. Five academic researchers work at ZEM.

We conduct research on behalf of private enterprises as well as government and university bodies. The statistics unit analyses survey data, including data from external surveys, and processes it into a clear and comprehensible form.

The ZEM is responsible for implementing and for continuously maintaining and improving the university evaluation at the University of Bonn. The quality of academic teaching as well as the structure of study programs are evaluated by means of paper-pencil and online questionnaires.

The ZEM is also responsible for maintaining and improving the university’s Online-Self-Assessment (OSA). The OSA yields feedback on the aptitude and abilities of those who want to study at the University of Bonn. It also provides information about the profile of the academic teaching in the respective subjects.
