Multicultural Dispositions Index



All professional education students complete the Multicultural Dispositions Index (MDI; Thompson, 2011) at four points during their programs: during the Admissions process, in EDUC 300, prior to field experience, and at the end of the program. Please note that your responses to this are ANONYMOUS; you will be asked to use a code name that only YOU know. (Be sure to keep it for your records.) However, completion of the instrument is a required part of the application process. Questions about this instrument can be addressed to Amy Thelk, Director of Assessment and Evaluation at James Madison University (thelkad@jmu.edu).
