Following the recommendation of the UVa Education Abroad Outcomes Task Force, the International Studies Office asked CSR to assist with an evaluation of the impact of its programs on students` cultural awareness. The survey items were based on a conceptual framework developed by the task force. A web-based instrument, tested during J-Term 2011, was used pre- and post-program, and items were added in Summer 2011 to measure program characteristics and student experiences. Postal and e-mail reminders were used to encourage response. CSR`s analysis of results from Summer term 2011 was delivered to the International Studies Office.
