Study: STEP 2019
About development, problems and interventions on the topic of handwriting
Along with the VBE Verband Bildung und Erziehung and its 16 national associations, the Schreibmotorik Institut is conducting a national online survey among teachers of all types of schools. The aim is to gain new insights into handwriting acquisition and the influence of the use of digital devices as well as the duality of both methods in teaching.
Handwriting in the digital age is currently a frequent topic of discussion. The STEP study is a unique national survey that scientifically deals with this. It ties in with the 2015 teacher survey, which found that the majority of pupils have handwriting difficulties. It concerns equal educational opportunities for all children, especially for children from low-educational backgrounds.
The survey is closed. The results will be published this spring.
