Being a Global Citizen
Welcome to the GCP Assessment Page. Thank you for taking part in our assessment efforts. Here you will find links to the various assessments we use to help determine the best courses, co-curricular activities, and community engagement opportunities to help students succeed in a global society.
The GCP model of Global Citizenship is comprised of a set of skills and attitudes
that aid one in navigating a global society.
• A sense of self-awareness and awareness of others
• A willingness to contribute towards a globally inclusive society
• An openness to new and unfamiliar experiences, people, and places
• Knowledge of the world and global issues
• The ability to understand the nature and interrelatedness of global issues
• The ability to formulate long-term and sustainable solutions to issues
The GCP assessments were chosen or developed in order for us to determine if the GCP programming is having an impact on these attitudes and skills.
The Global Perspective Inventory (GPI) measures Knowledge, Self-Awareness, Willingness, and Practice and takes about 15 minutes. Students who complete this assessment can receive a GCP Globe Pen as compensation.
The Global Competency Tests (GCT) are a series of 3 tests, each taking about 35 minutes to complete and all measuring Knowledge, Analysis, and Synthesis. Students will be rewarded with a Global Citizens Project T-shirt once they have completed one form of the GCT. Additional shirts are not available for students who choose to complete more than 1 version.
