Portalla, Tamra; Chen, Guo-Ming
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the International Association for Intercultural Communication Studies (Kumamoto, Japan, 2009)
The present study developed and assessed reliability and validity of a new instrument, the Intercultural Effectiveness Scale (IES). Based on a review of the literature, 76 items important for intercultural effectiveness were generated. A total of 653 college students rate these items in two separate stages and generate a 20-item final version of the instrument which contains six factors. An assessment of concurrent and predictive validity from 246 participants indicates that the IES was significantly correlated with other related scales. Implications and limitations of the study, and the direction for future research are discussed as well. (Contains 4 tables.)
