File Description [top]

The Social SciSearch® database is an international, multidisciplinary index to the literature of the social, behavioral, and related sciences, produced by Thomson Scientific. Social SciSearch contains all of the records published in the Social Sciences Citation Index.

Social SciSearch offers some unique information retrieval techniques. In addition to the more conventional methods, Social SciSearch offers citation indexing, which permits searching by cited references. For records added since March 1991, author keywords and KeyWords PlusTM can also be searched.

ONTAP® Social SciSearch is available for ONline Training And Practice. It contains more than 30,000 selected records from 1984 and 1985.

  /AB  ABSTRACT: A holistic model of assessing cross-cultural experience is 
        developed employing both authentic assessment and quantitative methods. 
        Authentic assessment methods address the multi-faceted nature of 
        cross-cultural experience. In this case, portfolios are used, involving 
        the students in the assessment process. Within the context of portfolio 
        assessment, a quantitative instrument is presented, measuring the 
        degree of cross-cultural awareness by locating evidence of critical 
        thinking in student-generated text. The intention of the quantitative 
        instrument is to provide an index for the achievement of our 
        educational objective, cross-cultural awareness. This assessment is 
        carried out by multiple raters. Findings indicate that interrater 
        reliability is maintained, and results from a study with independent 
        raters suggest that the method can be easily acquired and conducted 
        reliably. (C) 2002 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
