Validating Performance Models for Re-Educating Certified Urban Teachers in Multicultural Dimensions. Final Report.
Performance models for re-educating certified urban teachers in multicultural dimensions were developed based upon: (1) the concept that colleges and instructors should adapt to the students; (2) critiques of the whole system of education given by multi-ethnic students of the five Consortium colleges; and, (3) interviews with talented scholars with various racial and ethnic backgrounds. The models developed covered the following: (1) language aspects of culture; (2) motivational patterns rooted in culture; (3) culture impacted learning style; (4) time orientation; (5) patterns of family relationships; (6) cultural sexual aspects; (7) folkloria; and, (8) special rites and customs. Each model was based upon a systems approach flow chart and specified student need, objectives, media, and criterion measures. The Director submitted these eight models to eight representatives of different cultures for rating. The models were scored by their raters for "applicability,""implementability," and "cultural acceptability." Kendall's coefficient of concordance was then applied to discover the degree to which the raters were in agreement with respect to the terms Excellent, Good, Fair, and Poor, as applied to the models. For the models in total and for the factor "implementability," there was agreement in the worth of the models at a five percent level of significance.
