The Cultural Intelligence Level among International Students in Jordanian Universities
Al-Jarrah, Abdelnaser
Educational Research Quarterly, v39 n3 p23-36 Mar 2016
This study investigated the level of cultural intelligence among international students and whether significant statistical differences could be found in their cultural intelligence at the level (a = 0.05) due to the students' gender and the nationality. To achieve the study aims, a cultural intelligence scale were adopted (Yordonova, 2011). The scale consisted of 20 items distributed on a four\subscale. The study sample consisted of 169 male and female students from various nationalities, purposefully selected from a group enrolled in teaching Arabic for nonnative speakers' program in the language centers of the University of Jordan and Yarmouk University in the second semester of 2012/2013 academic year. The study results revealed that the students' cultural intelligence level was high. The results also showed that no statistical significant differences existed due to gender. Statistical differences were found, however, due to nationality in the favor of American students.
