Assessment of Global Competence with regards to Freshmen Students citing Background/Demography

Abstract: First time, full time fresh man students have generally been known to be graded based on academic performance. However, global competence on how these students would be able to engage in the real-world situations with the world becoming ever smaller and more connected to our lives, has been a challenge. The Global Competence Aptitude Assessment (GCAA) is a tool that tries to bridge the gap and provide an insight on student’s perception based on history, self-awareness, attentiveness to diversity, open mindedness, intercultural ability, etc.

Previous research has tried to measure how students make informed decisions with global impacts which has become a requirement by employers. This study would like to analyze based on background of freshmen students across previous years, from 2016 to 2018. This would provide insights on how the demography and background of the students affects their baseline scores in globally competent situations.
