A Validation Study of RACE (Racial Attitude and Cultural Expression Test). Final Report.
Samph, Thomas; Sayles, Felton
The intent of this investigation was to perform a validation study to determine whether RACE (Racial Attitude and Cultural Expression test) differentiates between primary grade students identified as having negative and positive attitudes. Students were categorized by a combination of administrator, teacher and clinical assessment into a negative or positive racial attitude group. These students were administered RACE to determine whether it could discriminate and whether an acceptable level of reliability was present. The variables of Linear Distance, Student Inclusion, Identification, and Power demonstrated acceptable reliability and discrimination levels. Even though selected variables discriminated, overall, the instrument failed to discriminate positive and negative student attitude groups. (Author)
