This web site is mainly dedicated to research and experiences with graduate tracer studies.
It will be developed as a resource center for tracer studies:
- Links to tracer studies in VET and HE
- Collection of questionnaires for free download and use
- Proposals for the methodology of tracer studies
- Proposals for a sample questionnaire and optional questions
- Theoretical background of questions
You can download here also some programmes developed at the University Kassel by Harald Schomburg and Martin Guist (QTAFI) to support the conduction of tracer studies.
