  • Before beginning: This journey begun 3 ½ years could not have been possible without the support of my husband Eddie, and understanding of my children David & Carlie. I would like to introduce them to you and recognize them. In addition, I must recognize my Committee Chair Dr. Kritsonis for not giving up on me when I encountered valleys through this journey. Recognition is also given to my Committee Dr. Hermond, Dr. Herrington and Dr. Gibson for their time and support of my study. Finally, I would like to acknowledge a doctoral cohort colleague – Dr. Teresa Hughes, who made sure I did not stay behind. Thank you. Finally, I would like to recognize my extended family members who came from the Rio Grande Valley, San Antonio, and Houston to be here today. Thank you!
  • The title of my dissertation is … R W F W This topic became of interest because at the time I began exploring my options for the study, I served as the primary bilingual teacher recruiter in a major urban school district where bilingual teachers are a critical shortage.
  • The format for today’s presentation will be as follows: R W F W
  • This is the theoretical framework that guided this study. Explain in own words.
  • R W F W

  • The following quantitative research questions will guided the study…… R W F W
  • R W F W
  • R W F W
  • Two null hypotheses were formulated from Research Questions 2 & 3 and are as follows: R W F W
  • R W F W
  • The Qualitative Research Questions were: R W F W
  • R W F W
  • BOTH DESCRIPTIVE AND SURVEY RESEARCH METHODS WERE UTILIZED IN THIS MIXED METHODS STUDY Descriptive Statistics were used to illustrate the percentages for bilingual teacher certification route and years of teaching experience. In addition, frequencies and percentages were calculated to represent participant responses from the Survey on Competencies Learned Through the Certification Route instrument. Independent T-Tests were performed on the data to produce results for the Null Hypotheses. Data were measured at a 95% level of significance. Independent t-test to compare the means.
  • Qualitative data were explained through the use of a cross-sectional instrument containing two-open ended questions on teacher preparedness as expressed by the teacher participants. Validation of the findings was done through triangulation. R W F W
  • The independent variables were… R W F W
  • The subjects of the study were comprised of alternative and traditional certified elementary bilingual teachers. Purposive Sampling was used to yield a sample population consisting of 3 rd & 5 th grade bilingual education students and their classroom teachers from 25 demographically similar elementary school representing 5 major urban school districts in Texas. 116 bilingual teachers responded out of 206 producing a 56% rate of return.
  • R W F W
  • The closed-ended component of the instrument contained the 13 teacher competencies listed as factors. A four-choice Likert-type scale was included to identify the level of preparation provided to meet the teacher competency as deemed by the participant. The level responses included: No preparation/None; Minimal/Little preparation; Some/Moderate preparation; and Significant preparation.
  • The instrument titled, Survey of Competencies Learned Through the Certification Route featured 3 components: R W F W
  • R W F W The pilot test form of the instrument allowed for participants to review for clarity; make criticisms; and state recommendations for improving the instrument. All 40 participants responded for a 100% return rate. No recommendations for changes were provided by the expert panel. Therefore, the instrument is trustworthy.

  • As a reminder, the first Quantitative Research Question was … R W F W
  • 50% or more of the Traditional certified participants rated teacher preparedness as Significantly Prepared in 11 of the 13 teacher competencies. They were…. R W F W This would indicate that Traditional certified teachers believed they WERE Significantly Prepared to enter the classroom upon completing their preparation program.
  • Traditional certified teachers reported they were not significantly prepared to enter the classroom in ONLY 2 of the 13 teacher competencies. They are… R W F W
  • 50% or more of the Alternative certified participants rated teacher preparedness as significantly prepared in ONLY 5 of the 13 teacher competencies. They were… R W F W
  • Less than 50% of ALTERNATIVE CERTIFIED teachers reported they WERE NOT Significantly Prepared in 8 of the 13 teacher competencies. They were … R W F W ** THE EVIDENCE THAT ONLY 5 of THE TEACHER COMPETENCY CATEGORIES reaped 50% or more responses of “Significantly Prepared” from Alternative Certified Teacher Participants allows one to conclude… that alternative certification programs NEED to make improvements in their training components so that they are aligned with the TExES state standards.
  • The following is the review of literature that support these findings… R W F W

  • R W F W
  • The 2 nd Quantitative Research Question was… R W F W
  • To answer Research Question 2, a T-test for independent means was calculated and analyzed. The “% Met Standard” on the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS) Reading mean scale for Alternative certified teachers was 54.31 and 67.84 for traditional certified teachers. The mean difference was 13.524. The t-test indicated that the mean difference of 13.524 was statistically significant since the significance level was less than .05 Therefore, the null hypotheses is rejected. Optional: There are no statistically significant differences in the academic performances of 3 rd and 5 th grade students taught in a bilingual classroom setting by traditional certified teachers compared to those taught by alternative certified teachers based on the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS) “Percent Met Standard” scores in Reading .

  • To answer Research Question 3, a T-test for independent means was calculated and analyzed. The “% Met Standard” on the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS) Mathematics mean scale for Alternative certified teachers was 52.65 and 69.51 for traditional certified teachers. The mean difference was 16.862 The t-test indicated that the mean difference of 16.862 was statistically significant since the significance level was less than .05 Therefore, the null hypotheses is rejected. Optional: There are no statistically significant differences in the academic performances of 3 rd and 5 th grade students taught in a bilingual classroom setting by traditional certified teachers compared to those taught by alternative certified teachers based on the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS) “Percent Met Standard” scores in Mathematics .
