The Dispositions for Culturally Responsive Pedagogy Scale
Whitaker, Manya C.; Valtierra, Kristina Marie
Journal for Multicultural Education, v12 n1 p10-24 2018
Purpose: The purpose of this study is to develop and validate the dispositions for culturally responsive pedagogy scale (DCRPS). Design/methodology/approach: Scale development consisted of a six-step process including item development, expert review, exploratory factor analysis, factor interpretation, confirmatory factor analysis and convergent and discriminant validity analyses. Findings: The final scale contains 19 Likert items across three dispositional domains: Disposition for Praxis, Disposition for Community and Disposition for Social Justice. The alpha reliability value for the overall scale was 0.92. Practical implications: The DCRPS can be used in teacher preparation programs for programmatic evaluation, for teacher candidate growth assessment or for career counseling. Originality/value: Other scales related to multicultural education reflect teachers' general beliefs about diversity and/or inclusive education. The DCRPS is the first scale that assesses teachers' beliefs and attitudes underlying culturally responsive teaching practices.
