Abstract(englisch):
Intraindividual variations in the behavior and experience of humans and interindividual differences within these variations are in the focus of developmental scientists. In this paper the use of diaries as instruments for longitudinal data collection is discussed. Diaries prove to be an appropriate method for measuring human processes and can be applied to every age group by either self-observation or participant observation. They can cover the whole lifespan and a broad set of contents such as relationships, stress, self-regulation, learning, clinical issues and training content. On the basis of diaries it is possible to collect and analyze data with a high level of ecological validity and a variety of sophisticated statistical methods. Statistical assumptions and examples of developmental applications and ways of analyzing time series data gathered from diaries are given. Furthermore, two studies that used diaries and time series analysis in developmental research are presented.
