This study suggests an approach to quantitatively determine the relative importance of outcomes from international learning experiences. These in-person experiences of other cultures are felt to be the foremost approach to increasing the multicultural focus of students and practitioners. There is a plethora of research that supports the idea that international learning experiences prepare students for cross-cultural interaction by affecting beliefs, knowledge, and feelings. Results from this study point out the importance of measuring behavioral changes as well.
