This study asks ‘What aspects can be characterized as structural elements of valid and reliable research instruments of cross-cultural curriculum?’ The aim is to substantiate the validity and reliability of a cross-cultural curriculum instrument. The research estimates three significant cross-cultural curriculum levels: curriculum content; organizational level; and personal level. These characteristics were chosen because an analysis of curriculum concept showed these elements are closely interrelated: curriculum is a flexible and complex system that includes teaching and learning aims, knowledge, methods, teaching material, school supplies, skills, values, norms of communication, learning experience and creative activities; and this system has to be managed.
