Currently two large educational assessment programs exist in Switzerland which are institutionalized by the cantons: PISA, the well-known Program for International Student Assessment (PISA), an OECD initiative that involves a large number of nations and the Swiss National Core Skills Assessment Program (in German: ÜGK – Überprüfug der Grundkompetenzen). Following completion of the PISA 2015, the core skills assessment program was initiated to focus on the assessment based on Swiss measurement instruments to get more results with national relevance.Both programs are computer based assessments since 2016 but the IT systems for both programs are not yet optimized for supporting the fieldwork in an adequate manner. Therefore a software tool will be developed to support on the one hand the administration and the field monitoring during the data collection. On the other hand the idea is to optimize the data documentation process. In this presentation we would like to show which processes should be modeled and where documentation und metadata could be generated as a byproduct without additional effort. This includes in particular also paradata which provide interesting opportunities for analysis.
