Vines, Erin
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, University of Southern California
This study examines the influence of action research on California community college practitioners' attitudes, beliefs, and behavior using the Center for Urban Education's (CUE) Equity Scorecard tools and process. This developmental evaluation study began March 2011 and concluded April 2012. The pseudonym of the field site studied is Las Flores Community College (LFCC), which is located in a suburban area in northern California. The CUE tools utilized in this study were the Benchmarking Equity, and Student Success Toolkit (BESST) and Vital Signs. The findings suggest that practitioners received new knowledge during the inquiry process when addressing equity.
