Methodological Model of Constructing Comprehensive Global Competence for Individual

Part of the Perspectives on Rethinking and Reforming Education book series (PRRE)


This chapter involves investigating the methodological model of constructing comprehensive global competence at the individual level. Along with the previous chapter focusing on conceptualizing theoretical model, it concentrates on exploring critiquing current assessments of global competence and proposing a set of dimensions corresponding to the conceptual framework for assessing global competency. Along with the critiques on current assessments and proposed methodological dimensions of global competency, the similarities and differences of dimensions of global competency, structural relations among global competency, and implications regarding the proposed measure are examined to clarify, enrich, and shape this methodological approach to measuring global competency.
