Primary Through Secondary Education

“The GCAA® indicates where students ‘sit in the world’ and some of the challenges they need to overcome to be full and successful participants in a contemporary globalised community”.

Garth Wynne,

Executive Principal, Christ's College, Christchurch, New Zealand

“The GCAA® was highly recommended by researchers in Asia Pacific to determine the global mindedness of International Baccalaureate (IB) programs. After a thorough review of many other instruments, we also agree and are pleased to use the GCAA® to measure the effectiveness of our IB program.”

Lucila Sotomayor y Peña,

Director of International Baccalaureate, Universidad Popular Autónoma del Estado de Puebla, Mexico

“Our two-year Global Scholar Program is thrilled with the GCAA®, which measures our students’ growth towards global citizenship. Additionally, the GCAA® scores indicate where we can continue to make further program improvements.”

Erin Mellow,

Global Scholars Coordinator, Teacher, Kimball Union Academy (Meriden, NH)

“We had been struggling to find a way to measure global competency outcomes provided by the World Affairs Council’s K-12 education program, as it is necessary for our fundraising proposals and sponsor reports. The GCAA® measured aptitudes beyond the typical standardized test and it helped us prove the success of our program based on local and norm comparisons.”

Jennifer Bowden,

Former Director of Education, World Affairs Council of Dallas/Fort Worth

“With state and federal assessment emphases on traditional academic threads, the critical skill of global competence is mostly ignored in the curriculum. The GCAA® is a solution that brings urgently needed balance back to the curriculum, allowing for traditional academic skill achievement through a practical lens that promotes students’ global workforce competitiveness.”

Robert Hollister, Ed.D.,

Superintendent, Eastern Lancaster (PA) County School District

“The GCAA® should be used by every social studies educator, for it empowers and challenges students to not only understand the world, but to be competent in a global society.”

Michael Beckett,

Social Studies Teacher and Past Secretary/Faculty Representative, International Model United Nations Association

“I have reviewed several instruments, and nothing compares to the GCAA®. The GCAA® is very thorough and comprehensive. It provides keen insight to one’s true global competence, which provides an objective measure of capability so one knows where to focus improvement efforts. The results are eye-opening, very accurate, and representative of one’s global lens.”
