The University of Udine in collaboration with Fondazione Intercultura Onlus has launched a pilot project entitled "INTERCULTURA ASSESSMENT PROTOCOL". The aim was to design, propose and validate guidelines, tools and an assessment rubric that can be adopted in the context of secondary schools and which will enable teachers to assess the intercultural competence of 16-17 year-old students on their return from a year-long international mobility programme.

More than 100 secondary school teachers participated in the pilot project. They all had at least one student participating in an annual International Individual Mobility Program with INTERCULTURA Onlus Association in 2016/2017.

Here is a brief presentation:
