Hi Marlene et al
The business school accreditation groups have developed such assessments; there is an online set of questions that assesses knowledge / performance / understanding / whatever they claim is relevant, in a number of core subjects, among them economics. In fact, most standard (read neoclassical) modern econ textbooks have problem sets that, in the instructor's edition, refer to (for ex) AACSB: Analytical Skills/ Bloom's: Application.

Subject: [URPE] learning rubrics
Our university is making every department develop learning assessment tools so we can measure if our curriculum teaches what we want students to learn. This means we have to develop learning rubrics for this learning assessment.
We are developing rubrics around assessing economics papers (not necessarily a research paper) on the following:
1. Understands economic concepts and is able to use economic tools
1. Understands and comprehends economic theories and institutions
2. Understands and comprehends economic policy and alternative policies
1. Problem solving and analytical skills:
2. Quantitative and writing skills
Have any of you had to develop these and if so can you share? Or do you know of anyone who has developed these? We'd rather not re-invent the wheel. Thanks in advance.
