Using an Internally-Developed Tool to Assess Intercultural Competence in Short-Term Study Abroad Programs
Kartoshkina, Yuliya
International Research and Review, v3 n1 p23-39 Fall 2013
An internally-developed tool was developed to assess the intercultural competence of students taking part in short-term study abroad programs. Four scales were built to assess possible change in students' host culture knowledge, cross-cultural awareness, cross-cultural adaptation, and self-assessed foreign language proficiency. Enrollment in a foreign language as a factor in developing intercultural competence was examined. The results of the pre and post survey as well as future research directions and implications are discussed.
