Prototype of a Metadata Editor and further DDI services developed in the German National Educational Panel

Presenter 1
Ingo Barkow
DIPF - German Institute for International Educational Research

The National Educational Panel Study (NEPS) - financed by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research - is an educational longitudinal study with a planned running time of decades and a very complex design. The database programming team from DIPF - the German Institute for International Educational Research is currently developing a Metadata Editor for this project which will in the long run feature a DDI3-compliant import and export web service connected to a SQL Server database. This session will show this editor as work in progress as well as introduce some planned extensions to the Data Warehouse structure in NEPS like a connector to a XML-based CAPI instrument to be released in 2011. The Metadata Editor as well as all other tools developed in NEPS will be released as open source products.
