Education

Kozai assessments measure how well equipped individuals are for global work and lay a path for developing their global talent.

In education, one of the primary goals is to educate students to become global citizens — people who understand cultures, operate with a global mindset, and can effectively live and work with other who culturally differ from them.

The Global Competencies Inventory (GCI) and The Intercultural Effectiveness Scale (IES) evaluate effective interactions with people from different cultures. Our instruments are used throughout educational institutions in two important ways:

  1. Institutional assessment of global curricula.
  2. Classroom use by individual instructors.

Institutional Assessment of Global Curricula

Be able to measure student global development pre and post course, often used in higher education for:

  • Meeting and exceeding national standards for global education by agencies such as SACS and AACSB
  • Evaluating effective Study Abroad programs
  • Measuring global education curricula outcomes

Use our instruments and join Universities such as:

  • Bentley College
  • Northeastern University
  • San Jose State University
  • Texas Christian University
  • Wake Forest University

Classroom Use By Individual Instructors

The IES (Intercultural Effectiveness Scale) is particularly effective for individual instructors in business, psychology, sociology, and Study Abroad programs to:

  • Provide feedback of students intercultural competencies
  • Enhance lecture content with ‘real world’ application of concepts
  • Aid in personal analysis for students’ personal development plan
  • Prepare students for Study Abroad programs
