Jackling, Beverley (2012) Longitudinal learning research on changes in learning of university students. In: Encyclopedia of the Sciences of Learning. Seel, Norbert M, ed. Springer, New York, pp. 2069-2072.


Longitudinal data have been collected over many centuries but only more recently has the use of longitudinal research methods become popular in education research. Longitudinal research has become increasingly valued because it has been professed to be a means of measuring change and making strong causal interpretations. For example, studies linked to learning have been viewed as having the potential to inform educators using both longitudinal quantitative data analysis and longitudinal qualitative data analysis techniques.
