National Center for Research in Economic Education

The National Center conducts research studies, evaluates programs, conducts surveys and consults with organizations on special projects. This work advances our understanding of economic education.  The National Center helped develop the widely-used Test of Economic Literacy for high schools, the Test of Economic Knowledge for middle schools, the Test of Understanding of College Economics (TUCE) for principles courses, and the Basic Economics Test for elementary schools. These tests are published by the National Council on Economic Education. The National Center also conducted national surveys on economic literacy and entrepreneurship in association with The Gallup Organization.
