The main function of this assessment design was to enable educator/researchers to crosstabulate student demographic data with the students' ePortfolio ratings to examine the correlation between specific international experiences (such as study abroad, courses with global content, and service learning) and learning outcomes.\n At this point we are giving less attention, though no less importance, to general demographic information (age, marital status, number of children, parental income). Some possible applications of the assessment include: * Allow faculty to examine the link between specific international student experiences and international learning outcomes. * Highlight weaknesses in student international learning and opportunities for faculty to align assignments with desired international learning outcomes. * Reevaluate how language and culture are being taught on campus and propose revisions. * Integrate ePortfolios or other assessment methods as part of a course or program. * Consider how diverse international learning opportunities might be integrated to enhance student learning ACE and the partner institutions spent a number of years brainstorming, developing, discussing, dissecting, and establishing many questions, some of which can be institution-specific, that are discernable from the data.
