This Engaged Learning Project culminated in the production of a study guide titled “México: Entorno cultural y de negocios, guía práctica para entender las relaciones bilaterales entre México y Estados Unidos” [“Mexico: A Cultural and Business Environment, Practical Guide for Understanding Bilateral Relations between Mexico and the United States”] and a complete exam. First, this report explains the project’s purpose and goals. Second, the report explores the important concept of “test validity” in creating and organizing the project’s study guide and exam. Finally, the author discusses various conclusions regarding the project’s outcomes. The project’s members include Pamela Nickell and Bryce Johnson with Dr. McDoniel from the World Languages and Literatures department serving as faculty mentor. The support from Southern Methodist University and the US-Mexico Chamber of Commerce in Dallas fomented the development of the exam and study guide.
