IDI Organizational and Individual Assessments
What is the Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI)?
The Intercultural Development Inventory® (IDI®) is a statistically reliable, cross-culturally valid measure of intercultural competence adapted from the Developmental Model of Intercultural Sensitivity. ¹ For a summary of the validity testing of the IDI, click here. The IDI can be used for a wide variety of purposes, including:
- Individual assessment in coaching, counseling situations
- Group analysis in teambuilding efforts
- Organizational-wide needs assessment for training design
- Program evaluation to assess the effectiveness of various interventions
The IDI is a 50-item, theory-based instrument that can be taken either in paper and pencil form or online. The IDI is currently in twelve languages (Bahasa Indonesian, English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, Russian, Korean, French, Japanese and Chinese). Translations from the English-language version were completed using rigorous “back translation” scientific protocols to insure both linguistic and conceptual equivalency.
