Abstract
Assessing the dispositions of teacher candidates remains a challenge for many Educator Preparation Providers (EPPs). This article details the validation of dispositional indicators for rating teacher candidates’ dispositions by utilizing Lawshe’s method for establishing content validity. Based on ratings from 131 respondents representing P-12 and higher education interests, 24 performance indicators with statistically significant Content Validity Ratios from 27 total indicators were selected. Consequently, these indicators can be used to construct assessment instruments such as surveys and rubrics that adequately cover the domain of dispositions that teacher candidates are expected to manifest to be able to facilitate all students’ learning in diverse classrooms.
