LOGIC Study

Munich Longitudinal Study on the Development of Individual Competencies

The LOGIC Study's comprehensive data pool is being processed in the research data center PsychData and will be made available to scientific research and instruction.

Boys with Books and GlobeThe Munich Longitudinal Study on the Development of Individual Competencies (LOGIC) is a broadly conceived investigation with the objective of differentially describing the courses of development of cognitive, social and motor competencies, as well as personal traits and academic skills.

The LOGIC project was initiated in 1984 by Prof. Franz Weinert, former director of the Max Plank Institute for psychological research. After his retirement, the project was continued until 2005 under the direction of Prof. Wolfgang Schneider.

Overview of the longitudinal study LOGIC

The study began with 205 four-year-olds, who were assessed until the age of 23 in a total of 11 survey waves. Therefore, the entire study covers an age range from preschool until young adulthood..

*25 further children were included to compensate for dropout in wave 1 (13 children)

The main objective of the longitudinal study was to investigate the stability of individual differences, as well as possible developmental patterns in a total of 9 different developmental areas:

  • Intelligence
  • Psychomotor Activitiy
  • Academic Thinking
  • Memory
  • Moral Motivation
  • Social Competency
  • Self-Concept and Self-Confidence
  • Reading and Writing Skills
  • Mathematical Competency

Furthermore, the complex interactions between the courses of development of different areas were investigated. Educational influences on individual developmental differences were also an important research question (Schneider & Bullock, 2009). Currently, a further follow-up survey is being conducted with the objective to investigate developmental pathways and predictors of civil involvement.

The research data from different developmental areas investigated in the LOGIK study can already be accessed through PsychData. Further datasets from the other developmental areas will follow after processing is complete.
