The instrument mainly consists of 23 test items that intended to mirror different phases of financial decisions. Moreover, self-reports on motivational and attitudinal aspects as well as questions on students’ socio-demographic background were included. The study intended to exemplarily test the items on financial literacy. The results of the pilot testing are reported and discussed with regard to implications for further development of the assessment instrument.]
