Exploring Online Tools for Assessing Intercultural Learning and Development
Intercultural assessment is essential to quality study abroad programming. In this presentation, we’ll highlight three of the most common assessment tools – IES, IDI, AAC&U rubrics – and show you how to weave them into your programming. Participants will examine the theoretical frameworks of these tools and discuss their relative strengths and limitations. You’ll also learn what to consider when selecting an assessment tool and explore how to pair online assessments with curriculum for maximum effect.
