Evaluating Antiracist Dispositions: Choosing, Analyzing, and Using Dispositional Assessment Tools in Antiracist Ways
Rebekah Degener (Minnesota State University, Mankato, USA), Bernadette Castillo (Minnesota State University, Mankato, USA), and Beth Beschorner (Minnesota State University, Mankato, USA)
DOI: 10.4018/978-1-6684-4089-6.ch015
Abstract
With a national push for the adoption of reliable disposition assessment tools in accredited teacher preparation programs, many programs are beginning to assess PSTs' dispositions in more standardized ways. Responding to calls for more adequate preparation of PSTs to be able to teach in racially, culturally, and linguistically diverse classrooms in culturally sustaining ways, many disposition assessment tools aim to measure pre-service teachers' antiracist dispositions. This chapter utilizes counterstorytelling methodologies to examine the tensions of choosing, creating, and using disposition assessment tools, analyzing the ways that such tools may work to further antiracist teaching while simultaneously upholding whiteness ideology.
