PESA-Micro is designed to test the learning goals of a typical introductory course in microeconomics. It is composed of 30 multiple-choice questions. We have given this assessment in several Cornell classes as both an end-of-semester assessment for our introductory course and a test of pre-requisite skills in our intermediate-level courses. PESA-Micro is an alternative to the Test of Understanding College Economics (TUCE) that is appropriate for courses that are more explicitly theory-based.
