MetadataShow full item record
This study examined what items driver education instructors felt should be included in a cultural awareness survey to assess instructors' preparedness to teach a culturally diverse student clientele. In addition, the study examined the ways driver education instructors felt a cultural awareness survey should be administered. The instrument used in the study was the Driver Education Cultural Awareness (DECA) Survey that consisted of 14 items. There were eighty-one (N = 81) participants in the study with forty-six (N = 46) from the Texas' Education Service Center, Region 4 area (Houston area) and thirty-five (N = 35) from the Texas' Education Service Center, Region 10 area (Dallas area). The findings of this study were: (1) Instructors believed that a survey instrument should include information about "preparedness to teach a culturally diverse student clientele," "men and women presented in equitable roles," and "images of teenager drivers;" and (2) Instructors did not agree on how a survey instrument should be administered.
