Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI) is one of the most valid instruments for evaluating and conducting research on intercultural awareness outcomes. It is a valid and reliable assessment of intercultural competence. It has been developed and tested using rigorous cross-culturally validated psychometric protocols with over 220,000 respondents from a wide range of cultural groups and countries (Hammer, 2015). The IDI reflects the capability of individual students to effectively navigate and bridge differences in values, beliefs, and practices. The IDI can facilitate growth if the learner reflects on their results, especially if an IDI expert debriefs them and provides explanations for their questions. The framework for the IDI can also guide intercultural development in the design of a learning activity. See more about the framework here.
