Abstract: Criteria to assess professional, methodological, social, and self-competence (Learning Goals) were established in a project to develop a competency framework and are used to measure students’ competencies (Learning Objectives) as part of the AoL (Assurance of Learning) process at the ZHAW School of Management and Law. The criteria operationalize students’ competencies and are designed to make them measurable using assessment tasks. They rely on scientific findings (e.g., the VALUE Rubric Development Project of the Association of American Colleges & Universities, AAC&U) and the expertise of specialists at the ZHAW School of Management and Law (SML). For every competency, we have created a set of between three and five compulsory criteria as well as additional, optional criteria for a total of four achievement levels (“Basic”, “Intermediate”, “Advanced”, and “Expert”). These achievement levels reflect the development that students undergo in the course of their studies and specify (depending on the degree program and specialization) the level of competence to be reached by the time they graduate.
