The Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV) has considered the development and assessment of generic competences in the curricula of its undergraduate and graduate degrees. Specifically, thirteen generic competences have been defined and introduced within all the curricula. These generic competences are to be assessed within the specific activities developed through the courses. For that purpose, the UPV has designed an institutional project called “UPV transversal competences” in order to guide the general implementation of the generic competencies in the degrees. This paper emerges from the work developed within a specific teaching project designed in coherence with the institutional UPV project that studies the “analysis and problem solving” competence in master degree.

Instructors have experience in the assessment and development of specific competences but, most of them, still need tools that aid to assess the degree of development of generic competences due to its novelty in the curricula. In order to fill this gap, this paper presents a structured methodology to design and develop assessment procedures and instruments of the “analysis and problem solving” generic competence. This methodology has been applied during the academic year 2015-2016 to assess the “analysis and problem solving” competence in the “Technologies and Computer Applications for Supply Chain Management” course which belongs to the Master in Advanced Engineering Production, Logistics and Supply Chain at the Higher Technical School of Industrial Engineering. This paper discusses main results and conclusions obtained from the application. These results are of two types: results of the assessment of the specific competence within the course, and results of the questionnaire passed to the students to know their point of view regarding the whole experience.
