Associate Professor Kenneth Rebeck, who has taught economics at St. Cloud State since 2001, served as associate project director for the development, revision and norming of the fourth edition of the Test of Understanding in College Economics (TUCE). The revision process included a national norming of 70 institutions across the United States. Rebeck also co-authored the TUCE Examiner’s Manual. TUCE, first developed almost 40 years ago, is a standardized test used to assess students’ understanding of the introductory principles of economics and to provide data that allows professors to compare their students’ performance with a national sample. TUCE is available with the examiner’s manual for instructors, school administrators and researchers.
