New URL for GPI: Global Perspectives Inventory

GPI stands for Global Perspectives Inventory, an online instrument that is just a couple of years old. Publications about its use are on the rise and the instrument authors share pre-publication manuscripts with their mailing list.

For information about the instrument and a list of current publications, see the web site at its new URL, https://gpi.central.edu . For personal attention, email the very approachable principal, Larry Braskamp (braskampl@central.edu), formerly of U of Illinois, CHEA, and Loyola U Chicago.

On the web site's page for Information & Documents, the last linked item is called "Our views on use, nonuse, and misuse of assessment." It's a thoughtful and organized guide not just for planning to use the GPI—the opening 10 principles can be applied to other assessments, as well.

(I have used the instrument with a client and have found the GPI staff to be helpful and prompt. I don't earn a discount for that endorsement.
