Texas A&M Evidence of Global Learning
These are the ways that Texas A&M measures an undergraduate student’s demonstration of social, cultural, and global competence:
1. The Global Perspectives Inventory (GPI) – There are three versions of the GPI, all of which are used at Texas A&M: general, new students, and students studying abroad. Study Abroad students take the general as a pre-test and the study abroad version as a post-test. The results at the university level are available in these reports:
Texas A&M already has a license to administer this test, so faculty interested in using this instrument for special purposes are urged to discuss this with staff in the Office of Institutional Assessment. Faculty leading study abroad programs who would like program specific data should contact Suzanne Droleskey at 845-3099 or sdroleskey[at]tamu.edu.
2. The Intercultural Competence Project (ICP) is an holistic assessment of Texas A&M student writing samples using a Value Rubric developed by the Association of American Colleges and Universities.
