Keep in mind...
As you accumulate more experiences, accomplish greater tasks, and embark on bigger journeys, your scorecard should reflect this. This is why there are various levels (1-5). For example, attending a 1 hour information session (Level 1) on studying abroad is not the same as the act of studying abroad (Level 4). Successfully studying and participating in another culture’s daily life has far more impact on your global/cultural competence than the 1 hour information session. That is what the levels distinguish - the difference in proficiency among experiences within a competency. Overtime, your proficiency within each competency will become increasingly comprehensive. For example, when you reach Level 2 in all of your competencies, your overall level will increase. Your overall level will match your lowest level achieved throughout all of your competencies. So if you have reached Level 2 in all but one competency, then your overall level will remain Level 1 until you reach Level 2 in all of the competencies.
