The work compares the results produced by the test TECO on generic skills, with the opinions expressed by undergraduates on the contribution that their generic skills received from the graduate program attended. The hypothesis is that a significant correlation between the test TECO and the feedback of the students can be considered an evidence of a causal relationship between the data obtained from the test and the ability the graduation course transmitted to the student throughout the academic year. Asymmetries between the two results may be indicative of some weaknesses of the results obtained from the course, which should therefore be improved. However, the absence of a strong and significant correlation between the test results and the evaluations of students do not support the hypothesis, and therefore the use of TECO test as indicator of the quality of a university course.
Keywords: Quality Assurance, Generic Skills, Evaluation of University, Test TECO, Undergraduate Students, Learning.
